I love Trader Joes's. One of my favorite things in their freezer section is the Steelcut Oats. They are perfect little packages of breakfast goodness. And, for me, they are a great breakfast option when I need something quick.
Then, I saw this post about how she made her own breakfast "Oatmeal Breakfast Pucks." I was intrigued enough to try it. So, I picked up some Steelcut Oats in the bulk section of my local store, and gace it a go!
Steelcut Oats for Breakfast
1 part steelcut oats
3 1/2 parts water
Bring to a boil in a large enough pot. Turn down to simmer, and cook for 30 minutes. Stir occassionally to preent the oats from sticking. When cooked, but still a little runny, transfer to muffin tins for freezing. My standard muffin tin, is about a 1/2 C serving. Let the oats cool slightly, then, flash freeze. Transfer to a freezer bag for storage.
Reheat each 1/2 C serving for 1 minute 30 seconds on high. Stir, and heat for 1 more minute. Top as desired.
