Overnight Steel-Cut Oatmeal

In saucepan, melt 1 tsp butter over medium heat; cook 1 cup steel-cut oats, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add 3 1/2 cups water and 1/4 tsp salt; bring to boil. Turn off heat; cover and let stand until cooled to room temperature, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Refrigerate in airtight container for 8 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 4 days.) Microwave on high for 2 minutes before serving. Makes about 4 cups.


Test Kitchen Tip: The oatmeal will thicken overnight, so stir in a bit of water or milk before reheating.
