If you put one cup steel cup oats in the crockpot with about 3 cups of water (give or take a little depending on how you like them) and turn the pot on before bed on WARM they are perfect everytime in the morning. You don't need a water bath or anything extra pot inside the crockpot.
Yum! I am going to try your version. I have a multi-grain hot cereal that I do in the slow cooker and we love it at our house. If interested, it's on my blog. www.mimisfitfoods.com. Thanks for your recipes!
I didn't know I could do that! Thanks so much for sharing!
I can't wait to try this... I just need to find a dish that will fit into my oval shaped crock pot.
Is the insert placed inside a water bath? If not, I didn't think it was good for your crockpot to be turned on "dry". I'm thinking you put the insert inside the crockpot dry and fill the insert with the oatmeal ingredients. Alice
it's fine Alice! I know it seems weird but I do it all the time.
I am thrilled with this idea! Can't wait to try it!
