For some reason, I'm going through a steel cut oats phase even though I've only had them once in my life. They have more texture than oatmeal which is a nice change. Yesterday I made this baked steel cut oats recipe. It was delicious, but todays breakfast stole the spotlight. I drizzled melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon over an apple I split into halves and baked them at 300 degrees for 15 minutes. I didn't want them mushy, so this allowed them to warm up and the brown sugar to begin caramelizing and still maintain their crunch and tartness. (The picture was taken before I popped them in the oven.)
While these baked, I made the steel cut oats on the stove top with water. To serve, I chopped up one half of the apple (saving the other half for tomorrow morning) and then dumped the steel cut oats on top. I'm not going to lie, I sprinkled a tad more brown sugar and cinnamon on top.
