We owe our friend, the mystery writer and artist, Joan Boswell, for the idea of making oatmeal in a small slow-cooker and letting it take care of itself overnight. A perfect breakfast for one or two. One ten-dollar slow-cooker later and we haven’t looked back.
Overnight oatmeal for two
½ cup steel cut oatmeal. You could use rolled oats, but why would you? We think it would get gooey with long cooking.
You can do this the night before or skip the step altogether. We thought the almonds would be soggy if added to the oatmeal earlier.
Get a good night’s sleep and look forward to breakfast with ease.
In the am, stagger into the kitchen, stir the pot, and add a bit of cream or milk and the toasted almonds to your bowl of delicious oatmeal.
How's that for a great start to your day?
