    Hello! I wondered if you had an overnight recipe for the Scottish Oats.

    Please and Thank You.

      Unfortunately, we do not currently have a recipe for overnight preparation of our Scottish Oatmeal. We are constantly developing new recipes, so please continue to check back on our recipe site.

        Thank you for your suggestion! Soaking your oats overnight is a great alternative to cooking in the morning.

    SOOOOO good. I altered the cooking and instead of cooking medium low for ten, cooked low for twenty. In any event, best oatmeal ever! I’m Irish and usually eat steel-cut, but porridge is really making me think twice now. Wow. Very good.

    I’m a little confused. (Newbie oatmeal maker.) FYI, your package instructions omit the word “cover,” but your instructions here on the website say to cover. Could you clarify, please? Thanks. What I did in this case is that since the oatmeal had already cooked for 5 minutes uncovered before I referred to the website, I heated up a little water in the microwave, added it to the already cooking oatmeal, and covered to continue cooking. It’s still cooking now. So could you clarify, please? By the way, I noticed when I stirred to add the water that they were already starting to stick on the bottom. Is that because they were uncovered? Thanks.

      Hello,
      We’re sorry for any confusion, but the instructions on the bag are what you would want to follow, making sure that you stir the oats occasionally and that they are on medium-low heat. If it seems like they are getting too thick for your liking, you can add extra water to get them to the consistency that you prefer. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at 1-800-349-2173 Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm Pacific Standard time. In the meantime, we will edit the website instructions to match the label, and thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    Can you comment on scaling the recipe up? If I want to make twice as many servings should I go with 2 cups of oats and 6 cups of water? Would cooking time change?

      Hi Joe,
      You can double the recipe with the same cooking time if you prefer a larger batch, just make sure that the pot you’re using is large enough for the oats to expand when cooking.

    I just wanted to comment that your Scottish oats are awesome. I make them in the microwave although I’ve altered the recipe. I use the same proportions of oats/water but I cook 1 min and stir, cook 1 min and stir, and so on until ready. When I do this I get smooth oatmeal instead of very large lumps of unevenly cooked oatmeal. I hope to try an overnight version soon!

    I use your Gluten Free Scottish Steel Cut oats to make a baked oatmeal for a highland gathering every year for about 75 people, always a hit! So good, thank for such a great product!

      Hi Noah,
      You can double the amount of ingredients listed for a double batch of oats- just make sure that your pot is large enough as the oats will expand when cooking. You may need to add extra water if you find that the oats are thicker than you prefer.
