“When you learn how to make steel-cut oatmeal, you may find yourself doing it daily or weekly so you have a bowl of hearty, chewy and filling oats for breakfast each morning. This recipe makes a classic version. Toppings are up to you.”


    • 1 cup water or low-fat milk
    • Pinch of salt
    • ¼ cup steel-cut oats (see Tip)
    • Low-fat milk for serving (optional)
    • 1 to 2 teaspoons honey, cane sugar or brown sugar for serving (optional)
    • Pinch of cinnamon (optional)


  • 1 Combine water (or milk) and salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Stir in oats and reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, until the oats are the desired texture, 20 to 30 minutes.
  • 2 Serve with your favorite toppings, such as milk, sweetener, cinnamon, dried fruits or nuts.
  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
