steel cut oatmeal

Today was a snow day. We slept in and had the time to make steel cut oats. One of my favorite breakfasts.

Here is my recipe.
3T butter
3 cups steel cut oats
2 cups milk
lots of maple syrup

Melt the butter over high heat and "toast" the oats for a couple minutes. Then add 9 cups of water. When it comes to a boil turn it down and simmer for 25 min. Then add the milk and simmer for another 15min stirring ever 5 min or so. Top with maple syrup. (As you can see I think everything tastes better with a little butter.)

Will you explain the difference in steel cut oats and normal oatmeal? Maybe our children would love this!

I love steel cut oats. Don't usually make 3 cups, but then again, I *only* have 4 kids :) Hope you all had a wonderful snow day!

I have to try this. Sounds like the best bowl of oatmeal I ever had in Lewes Delaware. I still can't forget it!!!!
