steel cut oatmeal help

withabandon | Jun 21, 2010 09:40 AM

I have just discovered the deliciousness of real oatmeal. Anyone who has ever taken the time to make steel cut oatmeal, knows this is worth the time. However, as someone who works full time, I just don't have time to do this on any work morning. I read that it was possible to make enough to last five days and reheat daily portions. I haven't figured out a way to reheat so that it comes out resembling anything close to the creamy porridge that comes out of the freshly made pot. I've so far been reheating in the microwave, and instead if comes out sort of dry, and a little sticky. I do not want to add any milk after its cooked-- and fresh out of the pot, topped with a bit of real maple syrup, strawberries, and blueberries, it's just a bit of heaven. I can't take more than ten minutes to make something for breakfast, and still have time to eat it. Can anyone help? Please do not tell me to use quick or old fashioned oats-- or eat something else for breakfast-- or to get up an hour earlier. The goal is to make real oatmeal ahead of time, enough for the five days that it keeps, and be able to successfully reheat it. Please do not discuss the merits of one type of oatmeal vs another or segue into a discussion of other breakfast cereals, foods, or what I should top the oatmeal with. Please, please, please, I just need help to know how to successfully reheat. I realize that this may require an adjustment in how its cooked in the first place. I look forward to your replies.

Thank you so much for answering my question.
