Overnight Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oats

I made these oats this past weekend for my family while they were in town.  It turned out quite excellent, and the recipe was requested.  I absolutely love the convenience of this.

Find a metal or oven proof glass bowl that:
1) Holds four cups of liquid
2) Fits inside your slow cooker with the lid on.

I used a metal bowl.

1 cup steel cut oats
4 cups water
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup dried cranberries, or other dried fruit
dash of salt

Place all ingredients in the inner bowl that will fit inside the slow cooker.  Stir well.  Fill the slow cooker with water to a little more than halfway. Set the inner bowl in the slow cooker and see how high the water is. Add water to the slow cooker if needed, so that the level of water in the slow cooker is approximately equal to the level of liquid in the inner bowl.

Place the lid on your slow cooker.  Set on low.  Go to bed.

Serve this oatmeal with a splash of half and half or heavy cream, and real maple syrup.  Leftovers can be stored in the fridge and reheated.

How simple is that!!
