Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oatmeal

8 1/2 c. water

2 c. steel cut oats

1 c. milk {any kind - whole, evaporated, almond, etc.}

1/4 c. brown sugar

1/2 t. salt

1 t. vanilla

unsalted butter

In a slow cooker take a stick of unsalted butter and rub down the insides of the slow cooker.  Pour in all of the ingredients and stir.  Set to low and cook for 7-8 hours.

This will make 7-8 good sized servings.  Divide out the oatmeal in heat safe bowls, allow to cool and store in the fridge.  When ready to reheat microwave for 1 minute, stir, heating for another minute until heated through.  Add toppings for taste.

My favorite is sliced banana, honey and walnuts.  Other options could be dried fruit, peanut butter, brown sugar, agave nectar or homemade jam.
