Steel-cut oats take as long as 45 minutes to cook. But this recipe takes only a few minutes in the evening and is ready by morning; just add one of the suggested sweet or savory topping options.


  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Topping 1: Combine 3 tablespoons dried cranberries, 2 tablespoons walnuts, ½ teaspoon cinnamon and a drizzle of honey.
  • Topping 2: Combine ¼ cup hot chicken broth, 4 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese and 6 chopped basil leaves.
  • Topping 3: Combine ½ cup blueberries, 2 tablespoons ricotta cheese and 1 tablespoon lemon curd.


  1. Bring water to boil in a large, heavy saucepan. Add oats and salt. Stir constantly for 1 minute. If oats foam and boil over, remove from heat for a few seconds, and then continue cooking and stirring.
  2. Remove from heat, cover and let sit overnight.
  3. By morning, the oats will have absorbed all the water. Add one of the below topping combos.
