BEST FROZEN HOT CEREAL
Good Food Made Simple 100% Steel Cut Oats, $3.39 (2 [8-ounce] servings)
Hearty oats that are chewy and toothsome with just enough creaminess for a perfectly balanced bite. Delicious on their own with a little sweetener, or as a nice base for fruit, nuts, and other breakfast toppings.

BEST QUICK-COOK STEEL-CUT OATS
Bob's Red Mill Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats, $4.39 (22-ounce bag)
Slightly salty notes (though it has 0mg sodium per serving) complement the robust and nutty whole-grainy goodness. Pleasantly substantial with a full-bodied chew.
