  3. Stir in cream and vanilla. Top as desired and serve immediately. Cover and refrigerate leftovers up to 3 days. Reheat in microwave.

Our Recommended Toppings

    Why Steel-Cut Oatmeal?

    Unlike rolled oats, steel-cut oats are great reheated. However, they do take longer to cook. So, instead of standing over the stove, save time by using the slow cooker to make a large batch that will feed the family for several days!
