To Avoid Disappointment
The first time you try this, I do recommend that you test how it will cook in your crock pot. As all slow cookers and crock pots can differ a little in how the temperature operates, testing during the day would be a great way to avoid disappointment. For instance, try it out for a Sunday Brunch first.
Once you know how your slow cooker operates and what temperature setting to use, you are all set for overnight cooking.
As well, this recipe is specifically designed to use Steel Cut Oats only for best results.
Simple To Prepare
Now, let’s talk about how much you are going to love the simplicity of this recipe. The only other important thing you need to remember to do is going to help make clean up and serving so much easier. If you forget to do this, your oatmeal might end up being very attached to the sides of your crock.
So, you need to prepare your slow cooker before adding the ingredients, by either:
- greasing up the liner heavily with butter,
- or, using a crock pot liner bag
Remember, if you forget this step, you will soon realize that your oatmeal is glued to the sides of the crock.
Other than that, it is a simple, load the slow cooker, stir, put the lid on, and let it simmer on low for 6-8 hours. Simple!
