Eggnog Cherry Steel Cut Oatmeal
What Are Steel Cut Oats?
Scotch, Steel-Cut or Irish oatmeal are all names for grouts that have been cut into 2 or 3 pieces and not rolled. They take considerably longer to cook than rolled oats and have a decidedly chewy texture.
What is Eggnog?
Eggnog is a homogeneous blend of milk or cream, beaten eggs, sugar, nutmeg and usually Liquor of some kind such as Rum, Brandy or Whiskey. Liquor-free Eggnog has long been served to convalescents and growing children as a tonic. Commercial Eggnog is alcohol-free and is available in cartons, usually in the dairy department by the milk or coffee creamer, beginning around mid-October. Canned Eggnog can be found year-round in some locations.
