Overnight oats variation: Combine 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats with 1/2 cup water and a pinch of salt in a jar or bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, add toppings. Eat cold or heat up. Makes about 1 cup.
Steel-cut oats variation: Bring 1 cup water, 1/3 cup steel-cut oats and a pinch of salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to a bare simmer, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until creamy, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 2 minutes. Add toppings. Makes about 1 cup.
