If you haven’t tried the Quaker (or other brand) “Steel Cut Oats”, you are missing out. It’s the oats that are cut, but are not steamed, rolled, re-cooked and toasted (this removes much of the protein and nutrition). Seriously, this process takes a lot of the protein out of the oats - which is then dried and made into other products. The Steel Cut Oats take a full 30 minutes to cook - but they are so creamy and good - you’ll never go back to oatmeal.

We are going to the store today. Thanks for the hint!
I’ll bet they can be made in a Crock Pot. Set them up the night before, hot breakfast in the morning!

McCanns are the best SCO. Quaker isn't bad, tho. You are right about oatmeal-yuck.
I use cooked and dried steel cut oats in my breads. It makes a deliciously crunchy loaf.

I love them and so did my kids, even though they called them “a bowl-full of boogars”!
