Toasting the oats.
Essential stirring tool.
Almost done. The last 10 minutes.
Steel Cut Oats
1 T Butter
1 C Steel Cut Oats
3 C boiling water
1/2 C milk
1/2 C Buttermilk*
Melt butter in sauce pan then add the oats and toast 2-3 minutes. Add the boiling water and simmer for 25 minutes. Add the milk and 1/4 C buttermilk and stir, cook for 10 more minutes. Add cinnamon and brown sugar to taste and drizzle with some of the remaining buttermilk. The bowl above got clobbered with all 3. "Bam!" - to quote Emeril
*I didn't have any buttermilk so to make my own... 1/2 T white vinegar to 1/2 C milk, combine and leave it be for 5 minutes. - Ta Da
