As the seasons change and the weather gets colder, I have a growing desire to make warm, hearty foods for breakfast. To me, a hot bowl of oatmeal before heading off to school on a chilly morning gives kids a sense of comfort ó not mention enough energy to carry them through to lunch. Back when I first discovered my crock pot, a wedding gift that had sat unopened in our closet through two moves. After years collecting dust, it quickly endeared itself to me and became my best friend in the kitchen. Itís so easy and efficient to use, I think I try to find a way to make everything in it. Oatmeal is one of the things I wanted to make in it for the longest time, but it wasnít until last week when the weather finally got cooler here that I felt truly motivated.


Oatmeal in the Crock Pot (Serves 4-6)

1 Cup Steel Cut Oats
2 Cups Water
2 1/2 Cups Milk
1 Tsp Cinnamon
Desired accompaniments: honey, maple syrup, walnuts and or raisins

1. Place the first 4 ingredients in a crock pot and stir to combine.
2. Cook the oatmeal on low heat for 8-9 hours.
3. Stir in desired accompaniments and serve.

@ 7:03am ET on January 17, 2011 I love my crockpot and my oatmeal too!!
I use my crockpot even in the summer - I plug it in out on my deck and my kitchen doesn't get heated and I still have a yummy meal!
Thanks for sharing the oatmeal recipe - I will try this:)
