HELP!! ISO Overnight Oatmeal
I need help!!
I've searched the archives and I think what I'm looking for was posted on
the "old" Budget 101 list. Someone posted how to cook oatmeal in crock pot
over night and have yummy hot oatmeal in the morning. It was more
guidelines than an actual recipe. Silly me, I started the process and
wanted to check to make sure I was doing it right. When I went to look for
my saved post, I couldn't find where I had thought I'd saved it! r.
Does anybody remember that post? Or know the how to's? I've got a crock pot
full of oatmeal and 7 grain cereal cooking downstairs and I want to make
sure It'll be okay by morning.

I found this in my files. It was before I was keeping track of what list the
recipes came from. I hope it helps.
If anyone knows who wrote this, please let me know!
Hi Tammy. I had posted that "recipe"--you can be pretty creative.
Fill a one-cup measuring cup with assorted grains. I had been using
oatmeal, bulger wheat, grits, and brown rice. But you can use
whatever you like--I tend to like 50% oatmeal. As long as it totals
to 1 cup.
Add 4 cups water, 1 tsp-1 Tbsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon and other
spices (a little ginger is good), 1/4 cup dried chopped fruit if you
Cook on MEDIUM LOW for 6-8 hours. You might want to try this during
the day the first time so you can check the time and temp--I burnt a
batch the other day and it made me so sad! I tried cooking it on
MEDIUM overnight and it burned. There have been times I cooked it on
the LOW setting, and the brown rice wasn't completely cooked--you
probably wouldn't have that problem with most other grains. You'll
have to test out your crockpot.
Serve with milk, brown sugar, whatever. It keeps very well in the
Yum!! I'm going grocery shopping tonight because I'm out of grains!!

Thanks so much! That was it! I think I got my water to grain ratio off by
a bit. Hopefully it won't be too bad by morning. I just added a couple
cups to the cereal. It sure has the house smelling good - even if I did
forget the vanilla. I *did* remember to add brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg,
and dried apples. I also added powdered milk to the water to get a creamier
taste. So far it is good.
Thanks for sending that! Now, to remember to stash it in my recipe folder!
