Irish Oats

Have you every tried Irish Oats? I like it a lot better than plain ol oatmeal. There's something in those steel cut oats that has a little crunch. Not in a bad, like they-haven't-been-cooked-all-they-way, but just a little bite that gives it a good texture.

We don't follow directions very well around here and I don't go by what the side of the box says. I like my oats to cook in a little milk because it makes them oh-so-creamy, so I mix 1/4 C oats with 1/4 C milk and 1/2 C water.

I put all that in a pan with a pinch of cinnamon and turn the heat to medium low. Once it starts simmering, I turn the heat to low and since there's milk in it, I stir pretty frequently so it doesn't burn on the bottom. After all the milk and water has absorbed and simmered for about 5 minutes it's done.

I like to put a little butter and brown sugar on my oats. Then I pretend I didn't just put brown sugar in it and I add a little fruit to make it healthy.
