Dish: Pan Seared Oatmeal with Warm Fruit Compote

Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast foods and I can have it either sweet or savory in the morning. I soak them in milk and ground cinnamon the night before, if I remember, and they are ready for me in the morning. I eat them along with some seasonal fruit and nuts and I’m good to go till lunch.

Since this week is all about brunch recipes, I have a slightly elaborate dish with oats that is perfect for a leisurely brunch or even to serve for company. The good thing about this dish is both the components can be prepared ahead of time and it takes just a few minutes to pan sear the oatmeal triangles and warm the compote.

Steel cut oats are cooked until thick and then chilled in a mold, then cut into triangles and pan seared until golden in butter. Using steel cut oats makes sure that the triangles don’t fall apart and hold their shape when pan seared. The dry fruit compote is a nice addition to the dish and makes it extra special for brunch 🙂
