Steel cut oatmeal holds a special place in my heart. I used to think of oatmeal as boring and mushy, that is until I had steel cut oats on our honeymoon in Ireland. Granted it also may have been the best oatmeal I ever had because I was experiencing Ireland and all of its beauty for the first time, but that was almost 16 years ago and my love for oatmeal is still going strong.

Especially steel cut oatmeal.

So I think I can now officially state that I just love oatmeal. And I don’t think oatmeal gets the love it deserves. But one bite of this Raspberry and Cream Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal will turn anyone into an oatmeal lover.

The texture of steel cut oats is second to none and the flavor gets ratcheted up a notch when they are toasted in butter before they are baked. Don’t skip this important step! It’s hard to believe the flavor that a quick 5-minute spin in none other than my favorite Kerrygold butter brings out. The nutty flavor can’t be topped.

Hosting guests for the weekend? You can easily double this recipe and feed a crowd. Because the oven does all of the work, you can sit and have a cup of coffee while it bakes. Add some fresh fruit and muffins, and breakfast is done.

Nutty, delicious and filled with berries in every bite, this Raspberry and Cream Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal is pretty much the perfect way to start any day.
