RECIPE: oatmeal?

livvyandbellaAugust 6, 2010

The last couple of times I have been out and ordered oatmeal for breakfast, it was done perfect. What are they doing to make it so good? They have a huge pot of it. Do they cook it up in a crockpot? How does one make it in a crockpot? Thank you.

It seems like there used to be a recipe floating around here for making oatmeal in the crockpot overnight so that it was ready in the morning. I couldn't find it so evidently I didn't save it. Hopefully someone else did and will come to the rescue.

I don't make oatmeal in a crockpot and I don't make the best oatmeal my son does. He uses the stove and stone ground 3 minute oats. He adds a pinch of cinnamon to the water and fruit usually peeled cut up apples, but he has used raspberries or blueberries. and then adds the oatmeal and cooks it with the fruit. Most times he will top it with more fruit.

One of the secrets to cooking oatmeal at home is to cook it very slowly, and stir often.

I tried it in the crock pot, I didn't like it at all.
I found one for you to look at, she has revised it so maybe its better.

Crockpot Oatmeal

Grease the pot before adding the ingredients. Add all ingredients. Set your crockpot to low before bed and it will be ready when you wake up. Be sure not to sleep in!

The secret to good oatmeal is Irish steel cut oats.

I used to make oatmeal every day and eat it at my desk. I buy old fashioned oats (Martha Stewart's recipe calls for lightly toasting them in a dry fry pan first - gives a nutty flavor), I put them in a glass dish (that you can later cover- after it's cooked) and add boiling water, maybe just a bit drier than equal portions. I do that first thing in the morning, and just let it set for a while - until I get to work and am ready for my breakfast break. When I want to eat it, I put in microwave for about 2 minutes. Sometimes I put frozen blueberries or a cut up apple with some cinnamon in it first. If the dish is too small it will boil over and make a huge mess. This method cooks it perfectly every time, it's not gluey, yet it's tender. No stirring, no pot to clean.
