I love steel cut oats but they take a long time to cook! So I make a big batch and portion them out for flash freezing. Cook according to package and use a bowl to portion them out. Freeze for a couple of hours on a baking pan. Then take the portions and store in a gallon zip lock bag or container in the freezer. Its easy to plan thawing the night before or you can heat it up from the frozen state. Add fruit and honey...done. And it seriously tastes no different than if it was fresh!!
