Oatmeal is not often a person’s favorite food, but steel cut oatmeal is definitely one of my favorites.  Adding sauteed apples and maple syrup makes it outstanding.  I make it for dinner sometimes.  If there are enough leftovers, steel cut oatmeal makes the best leftover oatmeal pancakes.



  • 2 cups steel cut oats
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Heat 6 cups water in a pot.  Melt butter in a large saucepan or stockpot over medium-high heat.  Add oats and stir a couple minutes until toasted.  Turn heat down to low.  Carefully add hot water and stir together.  Put lid on pan and gently simmer for twenty minutes.  After that, stir in salt and cinnamon.  After five to ten more minutes, stir in milk and continue to cook about 15 more minutes, until thickened nicely.  Serve hot with milk or cream and sweetener of choice.

To make sauteed apples:  Peel, core and slice apples.  Heat some butter in a frying pan.  Add sliced apples and brown sugar, maple syrup or honey and some cinnamon and nutmeg.  Saute about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened and coated with spices and sugar.  Alternatively, you can add sweetener to the butter and let it heat together briefly, then add apples and spices.  Serve hot with oatmeal.
