Steel Cut Oats

This is the recipe that my friend Tara gave me:

1 cup steel cut oats
1 TBSP brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup water
4 cups milk
Optional - raisins, dried fruit, nuts, etc.

Cook over night for 8 hours on low heat in the crock pot
I double the brown sugar and cinnamon.  I usually use craisins because they plump up so much when they're cooking. 
TIP:  Grease the crockpot!!  Its a major mess.  Tara also told me that she cooks hers in a smaller bowl, in a water bath. 
TIP #1:  The first time you do this, do it during the day when you can watch it.  My crockpot takes about 4-5 hours, not 8.
