Steel-cut oats are whole-grain oats that are simply chopped, so they’re super-nutritious and have a great chew. Chef Marco Canora likes to simmer them in whole milk and almond milk with sweet spices for a breakfast with staying power. Slideshow:  More Whole-Grain Breakfasts

  • Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the whole milk, almond milk and 1 cup of water and bring to a boil. Stir in the oats, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and the 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the oats are al dente and the porridge is creamy, 20 minutes.

  • Stir in the cherries, maple syrup and almonds and season with salt. Serve topped with more maple syrup and almonds.

Make Ahead

The porridge can be refrigerated for up to 2 days. Reheat gently with more milk or cream to loosen as necessary.
