  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar


  • Bring water to a boil in a medium, heavy bottomed sauce pan. Stir in oats and add a pinch of salt. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in dried cherries and spoon into individual ramekins or bowls.
  • If you prefer your bruleed oatmeal to have the look of creme brulee, then press the oatmeal into the bowl with the back of your spoon until flattened on top.
  • If you prefer your bruleed oatmeal to have a fuller look, then skip the above step.
  • Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and 1/2 tablespoon of granulated sugar on top of each serving.
  • Using a kitchen torch, brulee the sugars on top of the oatmeal and serve. If you do not have a kitchen torch, simply place your bowls of oatmeal in your oven and broil until the sugars have melted and hardened, about 2-4 minutes. Watch carefully to prevent burning.
