Cherry-Hazelnut Oatmeal

Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke
Yield 6 servings
We enjoyed the hearty texture of steel-cut oats, which are often called Irish oats. To make this recipe with regular rolled oats, reduce the water to 4 cups, and simmer 4 minutes or until desired consistency.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups water
  • 2 cups steel-cut oats (such as McCann's)
  • 2/3 cup dried Bing or other sweet cherries, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts, toasted and divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons toasted hazelnut oil
