1 cup Steel Cut oats
4 cups water

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Place oven safe bowl (Corning) INSIDE crock pot, using wadded up aluminum foil in the bottom to "lift" up the oven safe bowl. Be sure that the bowl will hold four cups of water and that the crock pot lid will fit on with the bowel inside.

Measure out one cup of oats. Pour that into the inner bowl. Add the four cups of water. Stir. Add a dash of salt, if you like (it’s not at all necessary).

Fill the crock with water to a little more than halfway. Set the inner bowl in the crock and see how high the water rises with the displacement. Add water in the crock if necessary–I usually try to match it so that the water reaches about the same height on the outside of the oats bowl as the cooking water inside, but I don’t think it matters that much.

Place the lid on your crockpot.

Set on low.

Go to bed.
