Before heading to the gym I put 1 serving into a mini crock pot (1/4 cup McCann's and about 3/4 cup water), plug it in, put the lid on and go. When I get home my breakfast is ready. I add a couple of diced dates and cashew milk. Delicious!

I love oatmeal!! McCann's is way out of my price range. Maybe some day I will try it if I can catch it on a good sale.

I have a steel wide mouth Thermos about 7 inches high. It is only for oatmeal. I buy all ingredients in bulk.
I take this to work for my early meal. I eat twice a day - mid morning and then dinner.

I just start dumping into the thermos:

1/4 cup steel cut oats
honey - probably about 1 Tbs
a couple good pinches of slivered almonds and dried fruit - usually cranberries or blueberries
cinnamon powder - i just pour some in.

Add hot water - not yet boiling to boiling - to about 3/4 to 1 inch below cap thread line this leaves room for the oats to expand.
Give it a shake. Put into lunch pail (don't forget a spoon) and eat in 1 to 4 hours. It is really good at about 1 1/2 hr mark. I also have a piece of fresh fruit and a boiled egg if it is a high energy day for me.

This is called thermos cooking. I will also make this to take with me when I go fishing.

I love steel cut oats. Haven't bought McCann's, but I doubt there is a great difference among various traditional steel cut oats. I like it savory, however. Cooked up with just some salt, and put a runny fried egg on top is my favorite.

I have one of those. Thanks for the tip!

It is more expensive. I found Bob's Red Mill online and it's much less expensive. I will definitely try it. And I like the thermos idea. Thank you.

Kind of a riff on grits! Great idea! I love grits and eggs! Thanks for the idea.

I love it, I like the "chewiness" of it, can't stand instant or rolled oats, they seem like tasteless mush to me now. Another good brand is Silver Palate Thick and Rough oatmeal (yes, that really is the name).

A word of warning though, the steel cut oatmeal gets stale/rancid tasting quicker than the rolled oats.

I had to throw out a can of McCann's with 1/2 of it's contents left the other day because it tasted stale two months from purchase from Trader Joes. Probably should remove it from the can and freeze it in a zip lock bag if you are not going to eat it within a month or two.

Oh, I put a pat of butter, a splash of milk or cream, small sprinkle of sugar, and a spoonful of raisins in mine. Yum. Like an oatmeal raisin cookie for breakfast.

Thank you for the heads up
