Found this on and tried it this morning. Comfort food at its finest... mmmm... (use any kind of oatmeal you prefer, it's the broiling of the brown sugar that makes this recipe!

Woo Hoo, I'm lucky enough to be the first to rate this awesome recipe. Love the taste and texture of steel-Cut Oats and this makes it even better. I did add add 1 teaspoon of sugar, cinnamin and vanilla to the oats after cooking them, before adding the topping just for some extra flavor, left off the raspberries as mine were frozen solid. But the crunch crust set this off as an over the top wonderful way to have a healthy start to the day and so easy. Just watch the stuff close under the broiler as it goes really fast, no more than a minute in mine. Will be using this often, thanks so much for posting
