Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium pot, bring 4 1/2 cups water to a boil. Stir in oats and salt and cook 1 minute. Let cool, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

  • Bring oatmeal to a simmer over medium-high. Cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in milk and vanilla. Transfer to a 9-inch pie plate.

  • Heat broiler, with rack 4 inches from heat. Top oatmeal with bananas and brown sugar and broil until bananas are caramelized, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with pecans to serve.

Cook's Notes

Soaking steel-cut oats overnight shortens cooking time in the morning. A sprinkle of sugar and a pass under the broiler give this dish a caramelized top layer.

I did watch the video first so knew to add a little water before cooking the following morning. I just added enough to make it the consistency I wanted.

Made this and absolutely loved it. I didn't have pecans so made it without. It was easy and tasted wonderful.

After following the directions to the T; my steel-cut oats soaked up all the water while overnight in the fridge... leaving nothing to "simmer" the next morning. I ended up adding about a cup of water, as it began to burn. Next, I had to broil it about 10 minutes to caramelize my bananas. (However, that could be due to my "wonderful" oven.) Overall- this was wonderful... I just had to improvise in some areas.
