Tips

Expert Tips

Steel-cut oats, also known as Scottish or Irish oats, are kernels of the oat sliced lengthwise. They require a longer cooking time, typically 20 minutes on the stove-top. Starting the oatmeal in the slow cooker the night before allows you to have a scrumptious breakfast ready and waiting first thing in the morning.
