This is a great steel cut oat recipe. I have added dried fruit instead of fresh apple and I have combined milk and water (to add up to 4 cups) to cook with the oats all with success. We do this on Sunday nights for the coming week. I still may top my bowl with some honey and walnuts in the am. - 1/16/10
To get the calories near what's reported I had to use a small apple, and unpacked brown sugar. I think I could drop the butter and not miss it. - 10/25/10

The butter is so that it doesn't boil over.
This is a great recipe. I used large flake oats instead, just because I didn't have any steel cut. I think it boiled over, a lot of the apple pieces were in the water out of the bowl and the water was cloudy. So perhaps 8 1/2 hrs was too long. But delicious and filling, now breakfast is ready. - 3/8/10
