Caramelized Banana Steel-Cut Oats

Steel cut oats topped with caramelized banana and bruleed sugar.

9
1 ½ c. steel-cut oats

1/2 tsp. fine sea salt

1/2 c. skim milk

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

2 firm-ripe bananas, sliced 1/4 inch thick on the diagonal

3 T. raw sugar

1/4 c. pecans, roughly chopped and toasted (optional)
In a medium pot, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Stir in oats and salt and cook 1 minute. Let cool, cover, and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, add milk and bring oatmeal to a simmer over medium-high. Cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Transfer oatmeal to a 9-inch pie plate. Heat broiler, with rack 4 inches from heat. Top oatmeal with bananas and then raw sugar. Broil until bananas are caramelized, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with pecans, if using, to serve. It's also good with an extra splash or two of milk on it.
