Here's the secret recipe:
4 cups milk (not water)
1 cup steel cut oats
Dash of salt
In the morning, pull out saucepan, and heat up on the stove. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring to prevent sticking on the bottom. Remove from heat, and let sit for a couple of minutes. Stir in another 1- 1/2 cups milk, and serve with toppings. (Another cook said he dumps everything in a crock-pot and slow-cooks it all night.)
There were a few versions on the menu: Sweetie (topped with bananas, honey and cream) Nutty (topped with walnuts, brown sugar and butter) Hawaiian (topped with pineapple, brown sugar and coconut) and the Warmer (topped with Bushmills Irish Whiskey.)
The Irish may have their Troubles, but breakfast isn't one of them!
