Crockpot Steel Cut Oats & Bulgur is like waking up to a warm cinnamon hug. It’s great as is or with fruit, nuts, and a drizzle of milk or cream. It makes several servings and freezes well.
When the weather gets cooler, I replace my yogurt breakfasts with oatmeal. I love the stuff and have cooked it on the stove-top, baked it, and now here is a Crockpot Steel Cut Oats & Bulgur Recipe.
When I was young(er), I would often stay overnight with my grandmother. We would snuggle and talk about what we would fix for breakfast. My wish was always the same, oatmeal! She used the old-fashioned rolled oats that I still love, but I really like the steel cut oats. They can take a little longer to cook unless you let them cook while you sleep!
I recently saw a recipe using oats and quinoa in a hot porridge, and that got me thinking that my beloved steel cut oats would go deliciously with bulgur. I love bulgur because it has a natural sweetness with a hint of cinnamon.I flavored the steel cut oats & bulgur with cinnamon, vanilla, and honey and threw it all in the crockpot and let it cook while I snoozed. Waking up to the smell of warm cinnamon had my tummy growling in no time. It was so smooth and creamy, and it thickened up as it cooled. I topped it with peaches and sliced almonds and a drizzle of almond milk. You could add another drizzle of honey but I didn’t need it.
This is a perfectly easy and delicious way to start your day or to give the kiddos a good breakfast before they take off for school. If bulgur isn’t in your pantry, you can use all steel cut oats. Another thing that I recommend it to snuggle with those you love. It makes great memories for you and them.
Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later!
I store individual servings in the refrigerator and the freezer. It heats up nicely in the microwave or on top of the stove with a bit of milk to thin it out.
