This really really ISN’T your Mama’s oatmeal but is my ‘funny’ way to get your attention so that I can trick you into reading my column. Ernest Hemingway and John Steinbeck both thought that the title of a book was one of the most important pieces that make a masterpiece (think “For Whom the Bell Tolls” or “Grapes of Wrath” or Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird” – all great titles!) and if they are right you are already consumed with curiosity about just what ‘Switchblade Oatmeal’ is – soooo read on.

If you haven’t moved on to Mr. Powell’s column or Allison Davidson Carpenter’s excellent column by now then I can tell you that I’m actually talking about Steelcut Oatmeal. Now you’re saying, “Dang it, I knew it’d be something dumb!” But wait there’s more! I’ve actually tried it awhile back and didn’t like the ultra-chewy texture and haven’t thought about messing with it again at all until I saw a couple of interesting sounding recipes for “Steelies”.
