cooking steel-cut oats overnight in slow cooker

AppleSister | Oct 24, 200509:15 AM     20

This was one of my main reasons for buying a crockpot at a garage sale, but when I halved Alton Brown's recipe on the Food Network site and cooked it overnight (1/2 c. oatmeal, 2 cups water, 1/4 c. milk instead of half and half, with some dried fruit), I ended up with mush instead of that oat-y flavor I love in steel-cut oats.

Do you think this is a problem with a) the slow cooker, b) halving a recipe, or c) something else? Any tips for making oatmeal in a crockpot?

Much thanks.
