One more oatmeal post
Posted by: AlphaDog
Date: February 25, 2009 06:58PM
I remember reading a couple of recent posts about "designer" oatmeal. A new Trader Joe's Fearless Flyer came today, and they talk about their Quick Cook Steel Cut Oats on the front page. It looks like it's quite a bit less than what some of you were quoting for other oatmeal (besides Quaker, of course.) They have it pegged at 13 cents a serving, or $2.29 a package, which they say is about 17 servings.

I might even break down and try some. Should I ever go to Trader Joe's, of course.

Yeah, that's quite a bit cheaper.

The old fashioned McCann's oatmeal is about 23 cents a serving form Amazon. It is really great, though. I've tried a lot of the instant steel cut brands, and tastes so much better (to me). I'll pay a quarter for breakfast.

Alpha,

There's quick cooking and quick cooking. how long does TJ say it will take to cook a dose of their steel cut oatmeal? The Coach's Oats takes about five minutes. When it comes to breakfast, even that's pushing the limit when it comes to time. To me, that isn't quick, though it is technically quick for non-rolled oats.

Couldn't some of these oatmeal posts be about cookies ?

I swear by all that is holy, and on a very tasty 75% cocoa chocolate bar, that I was going to post about that oatmeal as well. TJ's sells nice chocolate too winking smiley

Racer,

Heck yeah! I buy one of the giant bars of dark chocolate and keep it in my freezer. Once a day, I pull it out and break off a single square. Eventually, I finish it and use at as an excuse to visit Trader Joes again to buy another bar of chocolate and to stock up on other goods.

There wasn't anything in that flyer about how long it takes to cook it. I guess somebody needs to go to the store, read the cooking instructions, and post back!

Yeh, RacerX, yeh; sure you were going to post about those oats. smiling smiley

It takes seven minutes to cook the TJ steel cut "instant". I had some this weekend. While not as good as McCann's, it was better than the true instant by a mile.

The GOOD oats (non "quick") are just a few cents more...

Live a little!

And don't forget the very best topping for oatmeal... like, ever...

Also available at finer grocery stores...

Well, that is good oatmeal topping, but I prefer a good molasses or brown sugar to top it.

For those of you who can't enjoy the sheer joy that is Trader Joe's, they have a location request form right on their website.

Make sure to pass it along to your neighbors!

nuthin beats McCanns. My spousal unit turned me on to them as compared to good ol Quaker.
We like Mr Q, but she puts raisins in the McCanns and then a lil brown sugar, maple syrup, cinn, cloves & a splash of buttermilk.
MMMMMMMMMMM.

Only better breakfast is waffles made with Hodgsons Buckwheat & Carbons Malted mix with a couple tbsp Q oats, real buttermilk & a wee vanilla.
Then, if TJ ever gets back them chicken chorizo ............... I ain't leaving home until I need more.
And of course, a fave mug of coffee.

i got my McCann's at TJs. $4.99 +tax for 20 servings. there were other steel cut oats options there but i decided to try the original McCann's first so i'd know where the steel cut high bar is set.

It's close by and handy when I don't have breakfast (but they don't open as early as McDonalds').

JJ's oatmeal is steel cut. What are the crunchy bits? Are they part of the grain, or weevils that didn't make it out in time?

Starbuck's has oatmeal now also. not steel cut but still pretty good considering the optional packets of mixed dried fruit, brown sugar, and nuts.
