I ab­so­lutely love this slow-cooker oat­meal. The steel cut oats have so much fla­vor and tex­ture. My fam­ily loves to sprin­kle toasted pecans on top.

TEST KITCHEN TIPS

• Keep an eye on this as it nears the end of cook­ing to pre­vent over­cook­ing at the edges, es­pe­cially if your slow cooker tends to run hot. • It’s im­por­tant in this recipe to use steel-cut oats, which need to cook longer than rolled oats. You might find them la­beled as Ir­ish oats.
