always a hit!
I love this oatmeal recipe I stole if from Alton Brown of the food network I love him too!
it makes a WHOLE mess of positively LOVELY oatmeal
I make it whenever my family has a morning get together ala xmas morning etc
it's always the first thing to go even though it's the most quantity people adore it and ask for it all the time!
the ingredients are super cheap
and I make it before I go to bed and have nothing to worry about in the morning
1 cup steel cut oats
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup dried figs
4 cups water
1/2 cup half-and-half
In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients and set to low heat. Cover and let cook for 8 to 9 hours.
Stir and remove to serving bowls. This method works best if started before you go to bed. This way your oatmeal will be finished by morning.
I've substituted all kinds of different dried fruit in here and it's always good
it is important to either USE the dried fruit or cut back on the liquid as the recipe counts on the fruit soaking up liquid
when I serve it I put a little dish of cinnamon on the table and some toasted walnuts or almonds with a little more dried fruit

I've made this 2x's and have the same problem every time; it burns. I have heard that modern crockpots are much hotter than old fashioned ones. If I set it at 11PM on a Friday and we get up at 8AM on Saturday it's partially black. I think 6 hours is optimal, but we like to sleep, so what to do?
