Who loves oatmeal? We definitely do! We have oatmeal for breakfast at least three times a week. Making this much oatmeal for my family has made me quite the expert on oatmeal and honestly, there is no yummier oatmeal than oatmeal made from steel cut oats. Sometimes we have plain oatmeal and sometimes I like to fancy things up like when I make this Strawberry Pecan Steel Cut Oatmeal.
Told you it was fancy. Doesn't it look amazing? Well, not only does it look amazing, it tastes amazing too. Hearty steel cut oats cooked to perfection, topped with fresh strawberries, crunchy pecans and drizzled with honey.
I know a lot of people don't make oatmeal, especially steel cut oatmeal, because it takes too long to cook or it's too complicated. Well, not any more. I am going to let you in on a couple tips to make an amazing bowl of oatmeal each time! First step, buy quality steel cut oats. I use McCann's Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal®. Why Irish oatmeal? Well, the climatic conditions and topography needed to produce some of the finest oats in the world are found in abundance in the lush Irish countryside. I mean, look at these hearty oats...
