Overnight Sous-Vide Oatmeal

Posted on December 28 2015

 Oatmeal in bowl

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but so often, by the time you wake up for work, you're scrambling just to grab a cup of coffee on your way out the door. Hitting snooze on your alarm might feel like the right thing to do, but can leave your stomach growling at you for sustenance. 

Instead of struggling to wake up even earlier than you have to, try cooking oatmeal overnight with this sous vide recipe. Just think, after you have briefly prepped everything in vacuum sealed bags, you simply have to let them cook while you sleep. By the time you wake up, you can enjoy a ready-made breakfast.
