10 Sweet & Savory Ways to Top Your Morning OatmealSkills
I love porridge for its earthy flavor and creamy bite, but I also see it as a blank canvas in which to spin tales of delicious and diverse toppings. The opportunities for creativity and invention are endless — from sweet to savory, and everything in between. Once you start to move beyond traditional brown sugar and raisins, you’ll find merriment in blobs, dashes, and slivers of anything and everything lingering in the larder.

Why You Should Cook Your Oatmeal Like Laura Ingalls WilderSkills
We are all busy people in our own ways. Some of us have busy jobs, some manage busy families, others go to school or volunteer — for most of us, there’s no shortage of things to fill the day. So it’s a bit daring then to write about an oatmeal method that takes two hours — even for me, someone who writes about whole grains and experiments with different recipes as part of my job. At first this one seemed like a stretch — that is, until I finally tried it.

Recipe: Steel-Cut Oats with Maple-Roasted Apples and CheddarRecipes
I’ve become an oatmeal connoisseur. I’m that woman who orders oatmeal when eating out at relatively nice restaurants or on vacation to see just how they do it. When on a train trip a few months ago, I even became quite enamored with Amtrak oatmeal and would look forward to it each morning (it was a long train trip). Like you, I’m sure, I’ve had really great oatmeal and my share of pretty awful bowls, and I’ve learned a lot in between those experiences.

This Is Not Bacon. In Fact, It’s Not Even Pork.Recipes
Before your breakfast routine switches over to cold overnight oats or smoothies with lots of seasonal fruit, let’s revisit savory oatmeal. But not just any savory oatmeal. No, that’s not bacon. This cheesy oatmeal is topped with a poached egg and chicken skin “bacon.” Let that sink in for a minute. Bacon made from chicken skin. The most incredible part of this recipe is the chicken skin “bacon,” of course.

These Steel Cut Oats Obviously Belong in Your Cast Iron SkilletRecipes
There are so many ways to make oatmeal: the slow cooker, in a pot on low heat, baked in a deep baking dish, and in the microwave. I’ve tried many a way, but have yet to make steel cut oats in my cast iron skillet. Dolloped with maple soaked apples and a little butter (if you so choose) this is the fall breakfast of champions. You start your oats on the stovetop and them move them to the oven to finish. The oatmeal gets delightfully toasted and has a nice nutty, chewy finish.

Hate Mushy Oatmeal? Try This Easy Tip for Perfect Texture Every TimeSkills
Making morning oatmeal often feels like a tradeoff between texture and time. Rolled oats cook up in a couple minutes, but can quickly turn gluey and mushy. And while steel-cut oats are chewier and more satisfying, their 20- to 30-minute cooking time isn’t always convenient in the morning. Here’s a quick tip for making a bowl of oatmeal with a texture that’s just right, in about 10 minutes. It’s simple — just cook a mixture of half rolled oats, half steel-cut oats.

Got an Empty Peanut Butter Jar? Use It for Overnight OatsSkills
Between my daily breakfast of toast and almond butter and my husband’s post-workout peanut butter smoothies, we go through a lot of nut butter in my household. Normally I just give the empty jars to the dog to go to town on, but I really like this no-waste tip I spotted on Instagram from registered dietitian Lauren Blake: to enjoy every last bit of your nut butter, make overnight oats in your empty jar!

Recipe: Frozen Single-Serve Oatmeal with Almonds & Dried CherriesRecipes
It’s the first week of my second year of grad school and I have to admit I am not feeling ready. Mostly I’m bummed about four continuous months of only having enough time to do the bare minimum in the kitchen. Quick breakfasts, lunches that will survive several hours in a backpack and late-night dinners that don’t involve a lot of fuss — my cooking now sounds like headlines from a women’s magazine.

Hot Breakfast Recipe: Baked Pumpkin Steel Cut OatmealRecipes
Eating a hot breakfast is a challenge in the fall as mornings get darker and colder and we snuggle into warm beds until the last possible second. But eating a hot breakfast just makes the whole day better, don’t you think? The answer is to make your evenings work for you, and to prepare a hot breakfast the night before. I have found that one of the best ways to do this is oatmeal. But oatmeal is mushy, you say! Reheated oatmeal for breakfast? No thanks. Well, hold on a minute.

Can I Prepare Oatmeal and Leave It at Room Temperature Overnight?Skills
Q: I adore overnight oatmeal but due to repairs I will be left without a fridge next week.I was wondering, do you think the oats can be left at room temperature? Will they still soak up the liquid?Sent by SerenaEditor: Serena, do you mean uncooked muesli-style oatmeal? Or overnight steel-cut oats? I do prep oatmeal with steel-cut cuts (with water, not milk) and leave it at room temperature overnight, but I wouldn’t make more than a single day’s batch at a time.

Simple Breakfast: No-Cook Overnight Steel-Cut OatsRecipes
Last week I was talking with a new friend (hi Sara!) and she mentioned how much she loves overnight, no-cook oatmeal. I am familiar with this (also known as muesli) but the new thing here was that she said that she especially likes making it with steel-cut oats. Really? I said. They’re so… chewy. Steel-cut oats without any cooking at all?Why yes! And they are delicious. This has got to be the simplest way to make steel-cut oats (and all of us here at The Kitchn love steel cut oats).

Recipe: Congee, Comfort Food for Frugal TimesRecipes
I was sick with a bad cold over the weekend and although I was raised a WASP in midwestern USA, when I’m down for the count I usually cook up a big pot of congee, perhaps one of the most ubiquitous of all Asian foods.In my experience, there’s nothing simpler and more comforting than congee, which is basically rice cooked with a lot of liquid until it forms a soft and creamy porridge.
