The Right Way to Prepare Oatmeal and 5 Tips for Making It Better (Page 6)

5. Make It Ahead

What's better than having delicious, comforting oatmeal in the morning? How about having it premade and waiting to be eaten! Make a big batch of steel-cut oats (seasoned with your favorite add-ins) on a Sunday and then keep it in your fridge. Each morning, simply spoon up a serving's worth in a microwave-safe bowl, add a tablespoon or two of water and then microwave until hot (1-2 minutes). It's a simple, tasty way to have your favorite breakfast ready and waiting any day of the week.
