To cook steel-cut oatmeal, bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan and stir in 1 cup of steel-cut oats. Turn the heat down and simmer the oatmeal for 25 to 30 minutes covered until it reaches the preferred tenderness.

For a fresh take on oatmeal, try a savory oatmeal recipe made with onions, garlic and thyme sautéed in olive oil until the mushrooms are golden and the onions are tender. Fold 1/2 cup of grated gouda into the cooked oatmeal before folding the cooked oats into the vegetable pan. Mix it thoroughly and divide the oatmeal into serving bowls.

Alternatively, make a baked steel-cut oatmeal casserole by combining 3/4 cup of steel-cut oats with 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon and a pinch of fine salt in a baking dish. In a separate bowl, mix 2 cups of milk with 1/3 cup maple syrup, 1 large egg, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and 3 tablespoons of melted butter. Stir the wet mixture into the oats and bake the casserole for 60 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
