I bought steel cut oats about six months ago and they have been sitting in my cupboard. I decided to make this for my son and I for dinner. Since I never made steel cut oats before I followed the recipe exactly as written other then I used 2% milk and I didn't have buttermilk so just used all milk. I but the sugar and cinnamon in the saucepan when I added the milk as I hadn't read all the directions. I also used Splenda brown sugar blend as that is all I buy. We really enjoyed this. We do have some left over for tomorrow morning. Very good and easy to make.
Excellent oatmeal! I didn't have buttermilk, so I used 3/4 cup vanilla soy milk with a dash of cider vinegar for all the milk. While the oatmeal cooked, I also diced up two apples, added a splash of water and cooked in the microwave (I used the 1 cup fresh vegetable setting). When cooked, but still somewhat firm, I drained most of the liquid, and added brown sugar, cinnamon and maple syrup to taste, so that it was like a baked apple. This was yummy on top of the oatmeal!

I did everything as stated except I cut the recipe down to one serving, added 1/2 a small mashed banana when I aded the milk and buttermilk, and I used honey instead of brown sugar. This is definitely worth making again and I much prefer the texture of the steel cut oats to the texture of rolled oats (which is what I have always used). Thanks for posting this recipe.
