Oatmeal is healthy, inexpensive, and as versatile as it gets. It's a satisfying morning breakfast that's filling without being too heavy. We love oatmeal because you can make a large batch but personalize each bowl to your mood or what's in your pantry: brown sugar and cinnamon for a cold winter day, juicy stone fruit in the summer, or even cheese and a soft-poached egg for a savory twist.
Here's everything you need to know about oatmeal, from the different varieties to tips and techniques that will help you take your oatmeal game to a whole new level! Now you have no excuse not to bring oatmeal back to the breakfast table.
What Are the Different Kinds of Oatmeal?
Oatmeal is made out of oat groats (or grain berries) that are toasted to make them shelf stable. The oatmeal section at the store may seem a bit overwhelming, but the differences in varieties really come down to how the oats are processed. Basically, the thinner the oats are rolled, the faster they cook and the softer the texture of the cooked oatmeal.
Steel-cut oats - Groats split into a few pieces that are sometimes also called Irish oats; takes the longest to cook.
Old-fashioned and rolled oats - Groats that are steamed, rolled, and then dried.
Quick-cooking oats - Groats rolled thinner than old-fashioned oats so that they cook faster.
Instant oats - gGoats rolled the thinnest so they cook the fastest; the softest in texture.

The Best Tips for Cooking Great Oatmeal
How you like your oatmeal can be quite subjective: some like it very creamy, while some like the oats to still retain a bit of bite. No matter how you like your oatmeal, here are some tips to make your oatmeal even tastier: try toasting your oats first for extra-deep flavor, use a mix of steel-cut anad rolled oats for great texture, and remember to resist the urge to stir while the oatmeal is cooking so that it doesn't turn mushy.

Oatmeal is the perfect make-ahead breakfast: making a big batch doesn't require much more effort and time than a single serving, and you can make one batch at the beginning of the week and eat it for a few days.
Make oatmeal in individual servings in jars for the ultimate in convenience, or put together your own flavored instant oatmeal packets to save both time and money. Freezing cooked oatmeal is a great way to make it last even longer, and you can even freeze it in single servings that you heat and eat as needed.
