So I ran out of Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Rolled Oats and everywhere I shop was out of them. I saw this can on the shelf and said I'll try it. Opened the can and my first thought was miniature rabbit pellets. I make overnight refrigerator oatmeal with the Red Mill oats and them warm it up at the office in the morning.

So I tried the overnight recipe with the McCann's. YUK! Not wanting to waste it I made the traditional recipe from the can which takes 35-45 minutes. A revelation. Yummy! Like little berries bursting in your mouth! So the recipe makes a lot. One cup of oats to 4 cups of water. Divided it up into 4 servings and heat it up at work. Butter milk and honey. I feel healthier already!

Anyone else a fan?

But still, as a lover of oatmeal, I can tell you from experience that the quality and taste of rolled oats varies immensely.

I haven't tried that brand, OP. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen that brand.

I have a huge preference for traditional oats cooked traditionally. None of the fast cooked oats taste good to me.

OP, try putting a drop of real vanilla extract into the water you cook the oats in.

Will do! Sounds good!

Also these do not appear to be rolled. Like I mentioned they're like small pellets with what I assume are other pieces of the oat berry.

Someone once told me McCann's were the best ever (and you can mail order them, they're very popular) and you could tell they were Irish because a little bit made up into enough to feed a family. Of 10.

I did not think those terms were mutually exclusive. I am now aware. Steel cut seems to have much more flavor. Thank you.

Very true!!! I can tell you that looks are deceiving. They taste great. I doubt I will ever eat anything but McCann's from now on.
