Delicious Overnight Steel-Cut Oatmeal

 This breakfast is super easy for a large group of family members, because you just put it in the Crock-Pot the night before and voila! Nice, tasty, hot breakfast ready when you wake up.

2 cups dry steel-cut oats (don't try to use quick or old-fashioned rolled oats!)
8 cups water (or a bit less, if you like your oatmeal thicker)
1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon
Chopped walnuts/pecans
Fresh berries
Chopped apples
Raisins/ Craisins
Banana slices
Whatever else you think!

1. Put the oats and water in the Crock-Pot before you go to bed. Set it to cook on low for 6 hours (if it doesn't have a timer, it can cook a little longer until you wake up, but it does get a bit mushier after 6 hours and many people prefer it slightly chewy).

2. In the morning, stir in the sugar, cinnamon, and other toppings. If you like, you can stir in chopped apples about 1/ 2 hour to 1 hour before serving so they can cook a bit.

3. Serve with a bit of milk or a dollop of vanilla yogurt. Add a little more sugar if you think it needs it.
