I just made Irish oatmeal (steel rolled oats) in a crockpot. It was ready when I woke up and I loved it. I hate regular oatmeal. I'll have to try your version. Thanks!

Do you find steel rolled oats at the grocery store with regular oats? I had them in a recipe once and they were wonderful. The lady who made them said that you will never go back to regular oats after eating them.

Heidi: I found them in a smallish, white box in the 'oatmeal/grits' section of the local grocery store (Piggly Wiggly). I cannot remember the name brand, but I can check later. I've also seen them at Whole Foods, I think... Yeah, they are that much better than regular oatmeal, but they do require a long time to cook, which is why the crockpot is ideal.

Thanks. I will look for them. Can you use them in cookie recipes instead of regular oats? Sorry to ask so many questions.

I get my steel cut oats at my local store in th organic section. I buy them in the bulk bins. They are .99 a pound. They also have them with the other oats and breakfast foods but the are like $6 for a 24 oz container. SO if you can buy them in bulk it is way cheaper.

I also do not think that you can use them in cookies as they are like little rice pellets and are kinda hard. That is way they take a long time to cook.
DH and I love it in the crock pot.

Thank-you soooo much for sharing this recipe!:cheer4:

I have seen other crockpot oatmeal recipes using the steel cut oats but not regular oats, so I'm super excited to finally find one!

Can't wait to try it!:hungry:

I thought rolled oats were rolled oats, whether or not they were steel rolled or not.

I have to admit, I microwave my oatmeal, it has a different texture, but it is a lot easier for me and I like the different texture. I wouldn't eat oatmeal everyday if I had to cook it the *real* way. It is so cheap so I'm glad I don't mind.

yummmmm oatmeal.

P.S. whats really fun is if you have a little left over heavy whipping cream to put in your oatmeal, it is such a treat!

Hmm...I'm definitely going to put this in the crockpot before I go to bed tonight. I think I'll add apples and raisins. I'll let you know how it turns out. Sounds yummy!

It does sound really good, but at an 8-10 serving size, I don't think I could cut it down enough to make it worthwhile pulling out the crockpot! :( Maybe if I could convince my parrots and dogs to have some with me... :)

I always cook it in a pot. Does the crockpot version taste different? It does sound nice to wake up to hot oatmeal, as I am typically more in the mood to cook at night than I am in the morning!

Okay, it's in the crockpot, and I'm going off to bed. I used 2 chopped up Granny Smith apples for the fruit, and I used Silver Palate thick and rough oatmeal.

I am really, REALLY looking forward to eating this. I'll post my review in the morning :cat:

Okay, I ate this for breakfast. Here's the verdict:

Pros: Easy to put together, tastes great
Cons: Came out really soupy. I tried cooking it a bit longer in the hopes that it would thicken up, but it didn't.

I would definitely make this again, but I think I would go with the OP's suggestion of using raisins. I might scale the water back a bit, too. I know that some people like soupy oatmeal, but I like mine thicker. All in all, it was really good!
