I am cleaning out my pantry because I am moving at the end of the month and I found a bag of Bob's Red Mill steel cut oats. So, what can I do with it? I heard that you can cook this food in a big batch and reheat it during the week, how can I do that without it getting gluey and gross as it sits in the fridge? If it is true that I can really make this ahead, I would like to make a few days worth and leave it in the fridge, then reheat individual portions in the microwave and mix them with applesauce (this is what I usually eat for breakfast, regular oats with applesauce mixed in).<br><br>
So, how to cook it so I can make it ahead?<br>
Does it reheat well?<br>
What is a serving size for a cooked portion?<br>
Creative ideas for toppings?<br>
Any tips and tricks?<br><br>
I would love to hear your suggestions for the best way to enjoy steel cut oats.

I use Cooks Illustrated recipe. It's really the best and most consistent I've used.<br>
And it reheats pretty well (I usually add more milk when doing so)<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/a/ae/aedf7586_vbattach17682.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/a/ae/525x525px-LL-aedf7586_vbattach17682.jpeg" style="width:387px;height:525px;"></a>

love Love LOVE steel cut oats. Great flavor, great texture. Just like any grain, you can soak it ahead of time. I love soaked oats. I eat it just about every morning. But for your standard hot cereal preparation I tend to stick to soy milk, oats, nuts, dried fruit, maple syrup and sea salt. I simmer at medium heat till almost all the moisture has evaporated or absorbed then finish with a little coconut oil. Extremely satisfying.<br><br>
As far as portioning is concerned.. that all depends on you. I'm extremely active; yoga, weight training, running and a job that keeps me moving. So I eat 12 oz with a full breakfast ut that may be s little much for some who is not quite as active or too little for someone who is eating only that for breakfast.
