Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ Cup pancetta, diced (bacon, prosciutto, or ham can be substituted for pancetta)
  • 2 Cups fresh corn (approximately 3 ears) or frozen, thawed
  • 1 Cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 whole small shallots, diced (optional)
  • 2 whole cloves garlic, diced (optional)
  • 1 Cup Quaker Quick 3-Minute Steel-Cut Oats
  • 4 Cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Grated pecorino or Asiago cheese

Directions

In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil on medium heat. Add the pancetta, corn, and cherry tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Remove this mixture from the pan and place in a bowl to the side. Into the same pan add the butter, shallots, and garlic and cook for 2 minutes at medium heat. Add the oats and stir continuously until lightly toasted, golden, and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chicken stock and stir to combine. Cover the pan and reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until oats are al dente, 20 to 25 minutes. Add the pancetta, corn, and tomato mixture to the cooked oats and stir to combine. Season with black pepper and top with grated pecorino cheese.

Steel-Cut Oat Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Steel-Cut Oat Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
