I absolutely love this one-dish oatmeal. The steel-cut oats have so much flavor and texture. My family loves to sprinkle toasted pecans on top. —Angela Lively, Conroe, Texas

    It may be the type of steel cut oats that I used, (McCann) but after two cycles of even 7 minutes on high it was still very watery, so I added another 1/2 cup steel cut oats and did it again at 7 minutes just to give it more time and then it was great. I did the 6 cups water and 1.5 cups homemade applesauce, no maple syrup. ( we add after done individually if desired) So for me it worked out very well with two cups of steel cut oats with the quantity of water and sauce. Would do again with that in mind. I got about 6 cups total. As it cools and gets reheated it may need more water or milk added so that will help increase the volume . Good way to use up lots of applesauce. Nice fall oatmeal.
