By 4 hours into the night we could smell the oatmeal beginning to burn. After another hour it was inedible and completely stuck to the crock...will search for another recipe.
Here is an easy way to serve a crowd a hearty breakfast before facing the elements for a day of winter sports. You can assemble it in the slow cooker in the evening and wake up to a bowl of hot, nourishing oatmeal. The slow cooker eliminates the need for constant stirring and ensures an exceptionally creamy consistency. It is important to use steel-cut oats; old-fashioned oats become too soft during slow-cooking.

It's a great and healthy recipe. The creamy consistency is delicious. I actually bake it in the oven overnight in a heavy pan with a fitted lid at 225 for 7 to 8hrs. I also add 2 fresh unpeeled apples cut in pieces before putting the dish in the oven for a different apple sauce version. You can use only milk instead of 1/2 water and 1/2 milk. Especially good if you use skim or 1% milk.
Easy and delicious! I would award 5 stars except for the fact that the dried fruits lost their flavor during the overnight cooking. Hereafter for better flavor, I'll add fresh or hydrated dried fruits when I serve the oatmeal in the morning. I liked the texture and taste of the oatmeal. However, the recipe made enough to feed two people every day for a week! It does reheat nicely in the microwave though.
