I just recently started eating Coach's 'steel-cut, cracked and toasted' Oats and it's got me hooked. It's nutty and full of flavor. This is from the back of their package...slightly modified. I use butter for greasing ... I know, but I love the flavor of butter! Please note that I'm not sure how this will work with regular oatmeal. Okay, I bought another brand of 'steel-cut' oatmeal to see if there was a difference. There was enough difference in the texture, flavor, cook-time and overall quality (to me) that I recommend you use the Coach's brand for this recipe.
