Overnight Steel Cut Oatmeal

Overnight Steel Cut Oatmeal

Giving your steel cut oats a head start the night before makes all the difference for a quick breakfast come morning. Cook them until tender and serve with your favorite oatmeal fixings.
Servings 4 servings


  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup steel cut oats (Irish oats)
  • Pinch salt


  1. In a medium pot, bring water to a boil. Add the oats and salt, give it a good stir, bring it back to a boil. Once it boils, put on the lid and remove from heat.
  2. Transfer to the fridge overnight.
  3. In the morning, remove the lid and return the pot to the stove over high heat. When the liquid boils, drop the heat until it simmers and cook until warm and tender (like you are on your better days), about 10 minutes.
  4. Serve with your favorite oatmeal toppings.
