Three Cheers for Oats
Mushroom-and-Spinach Quiche in an Oat Crust
Steel-Cut Oat Risotto
Oats are most common in rolled form. For extra fiber, whole-grain texture and great autumnal flavor, try steel-cut oats in this butternut squash risotto.
Pan-Seared Oatmeal with Warm Fruit Compote and Cider Syrup
This is oatmeal to get excited about. Hearty steel-cut oats are chilled and cut into triangles, then seared in butter and topped with warm fruit.
Plump up a meatloaf with nutty flavor by adding a half-cup of oats to the meat mixture. The benefit: an extra boost of dietary fiber (4g).

Apple-Cranberry Walnut Crisp
The combination of oats, whole wheat pastry flour, and walnuts makes this crisp topping taste a little like a granola bar. And oats add few calories–only 150 per half-cup serving.

Turkey and Oat Burgers
Oats contain plenty of vitamins B1, B2, and E. For a healthy twist on traditional burgers, make patties with oats and ground turkey. You'll save around seven fat grams and delight in the heartiness of the burgers.
