Overnight Steel Cut Oatmeal
Slowly cooking steel cut oats overnight makes for the creamiest bowl of oatmeal to wake up to. Experiment with toppings and spices.
Note: Instant or old fashioned rolled oats should not be substituted, as they don't hold up to such a long cooking time.
The butter should help to prevent some sticking, but inevitably a crust will form around the sides of the slow cooker pot by the end of the 8 hours.
If you decide to halve the recipe, you should use a smaller, 2 quart slow cooker.
