Me & My Slow Cooker at 11pm on a Wednesday Night

This isn't typically what I find myself doing at 11pm on a Wednesday night... But, this week my husband and I went shopping at Costco and bought a HUGE box of Steel Cut Oats. I have been hearing a lot lately about their benefits over traditional rolled oats and wanted to give them a try.

So, tonight I'll be preparing breakfast for the next few days - Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oatmeal. I found the recipe over at The Merry Gourmet - a very cute foodie blog. Here is The Merry Gourmet's recipe for Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oatmeal. Tomorrow morning I plan on topping mine with honey and almonds. On Friday, I think I'll treat myself and top it with some sliced bananas and chocolate chips.  If you are looking for more ideas on how to top your Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oatmeal, visit the Oh She Glows blog for more ideas (and another variation on Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oatmeal).

This is a easy, nutritious, and fun meal that is perfect for the whole family. Plus, by topping your oatmeal with the ingredients of your choice it makes it a breakfast that everyone will enjoy!

Have you ever tried steel cut oats?  How do you like them compared to traditional rolled oats or quick oats?  What recipes do you use them in?
