Dinner is not the only meal for entertaining. Breakfast is a great and budget friendly way to entertain, especially with the all the holiday parties on the way. Try adding Coach’s Oats to your next A.M. get-together. Oatmeal is a warm and comforting addition to any morning menu. Simply have the oatmeal ready to serve and set out a topping bar along side: anything from brown sugar, milk, seasonal berries, nuts, etc. Here are simple instructions for cooking Coach’s Oats in a rice cooker to make your entertaining even easier:
*Cooking Ratio 1 part Coach’s Oats to 3 parts water.*
For 3 cups water add 1 cup oats; yields 3+ cups Coach’s Oats
For 6 cups water add 2 cups oats; yields 6+ cups Coach’s Oats
1. Add Coach’s Oats into Rice Cooker
2. Add Water
3. Turn Rice Cooker to “Cook”
4. For 3+ cups Coach’s Oats, simmer on “cook” for 12-14 minutes
For 6+ cups Coach’s Oats simmer on “cook” for 21-23 minutes
5. When finished, the oatmeal should still have a small amount of water left on top. This water will eventually be absorbed.
6. Turn rice cooker to “warm” setting. This is important in order to maintain the steel cut texture.
7. When appropriate, stir Coach’s Oats to keep even consistency
8. Keep lid on when not serving (also important to keep texture)

My kitchen is being remodeled after a fire. Currently I do not have a stove and am cooking in a electric frypan, microwave and the outdoor grill. I did use my crockpot (rectangular/oval). I put 6 generous cups boiling water water to 2 cups oats,a smidge of maple flavoring, small dash of salt and a Tbsp of butte into a preheated crockpot. Let it cook for about an hour with several stirings. It was still slightly soupy when I took the bowl out of the crockpot and set it on the counter. In the morning the oatmeal was soft solid. I dished it up and reheated it in the microwave, topped it with some sliced bananas and nutmeg. It was great. Still have enough for 2 more mornings. Can do lots of variations with ingredients. Just thought you’d like to know about my experiment.
