Baked Pumpkin Steel Cut Oatmeal

 I love when I find a recipe I want to try, and I already have all the ingredients in my cupboard. That's how I felt when I found this recipe for Pumpkin Oatmeal over on The Kitchn.

I eat oatmeal most mornings but I never blog about because its just a boring bowl of oats...but this recipe is more than a standard 'boil water add oats' situation. There was some serious stove top attention involved, and I utilized my Le Creuset to bake a week's worth of breakfasts.


In the past when I had tried steel cut oatmeal, I would get irritated because it required a lengthy cooking time and it would almost always boil over. The baking method totally solves this problem and the pumpkin and spices made me feel like I was eating dessert for breakfast!


This is definitely a great, and time saving recipe. I made one pot on Sunday and have been reheating it every morning....Great way to start the day!

  2. Hi Danielle - I'd say its pretty clean by my standards- as in, nothing processed - steel cut oats, canned pumpkin, milk, brown sugar & butter(a small amount for a large serving). No unreasonable amounts of fats/sugar...but that doesn't count all the maple syrup I served it with ...yUM!

  4. I am actually going to try this. It's my plan to make big batches of oatmeal that I can just re-warm during the week for my pre-work breakfast. I always have to bring something to eat at work too... I think it's the hour commute that wears me out and makes me hungry again by the time I get to work!

  5. Another way to get faster steel-cup oatmeal is to soak the oats overnight. Here is my recipe for Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oatmeal that you can make in a jiffy if you soak the oats. http://feedingmytribe.wordpress.com/2011/08/09/pumpkin-pie-steel-cut-oatmeal-in-less-than-10-minutes/
