Steel Cut Oat Fries with Cherry Dipping Sauce

Oat Fries

Cherry Dipping Sauce

  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Shallots minced (or Onion)
  • 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar plus more to taste
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth (or Vegetable Broth)
  • 2 Tbsp Cane Sugar
  • 1/2 cup DRIED TART CHERRIES chopped
  • 1 Salt and Pepper to taste


Oat Fries

Step 1

Line a 4 ½ x 6 ½ -inch metal baking pan with plastic wrap and set aside.

Step 2

Bring milk, water and butter to a boil in a large heavy saucepan. Gradually whisk in Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until oats are very thick and start to pull away from the sides, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in cheese and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Immediately transfer the oats to the prepared baking pan, spreading evenly so height is consistent throughout. Refrigerate until cool and firm, about 1 hour. To store overnight, cover when cooled and keep refrigerated.

Step 4

Turn oats out onto a cutting board and cut into ¾ x 3-inch rectangles. Set aside.

Step 5

Preheat oven to very low, about 200°F. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Place flour in a plate or pie pan. Lightly coat the oat fries in flour, shaking off excess.

Step 6

Working in batches so as not to crowd the pan, fry oat fries until golden-brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Add more oil, if necessary, but make sure the oil has warmed to medium-high heat before continuing frying. Transfer fries to paper towels with a slotted spoon and let drain. Place fries on a clean baking sheet and keep warm in the low oven while frying remaining batches.

Serve with Cherry Dipping Sauce.

Serves 5 - 7.

Cherry Dipping Sauce

Step 1

Heat oil in a medium skillet oven medium heat. Add shallots or onions and sauté until translucent.

Step 2

Add balsamic vinegar and stir well for about 1 minute, making sure to scrape up any pieces stuck to the pan.

Step 3

Add stock and increase heat to medium-high. Add cane sugar and dried cherries, stir well and let simmer until thick, about 10 minutes.

Let cool slightly and serve with Steel Cut Oat Fries.
