Good Eats Overnight Oatmeal for Christmas Morning

This is what I make every Christmas Eve so that we have breakfast waiting for us when we get up Christmas Morning. I have noted my additions to the recipe in italics.

FoodNetwork.com - Overnight Oatmeal
Good Eats - Alton Brown

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 9 hr 0 min

Level: Easy

Serves: 4 servings

1 cup steel cut oats
1 cup dried cranberries
(This year I used dried blueberries. I usually omit the dried fruit, but I think anything you like would work.)
1 cup dried figs (Omitted)
4 cups water (I use 2 cups milk and 2 cups water instead)
1/2 cup half-and-half (I used whipping creme I had left over from other recipes)

(Add 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/8 tsp cloves (or to taste)
(Add maple syrup to sweeten, if you wish)

In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients and set to low heat. Cover and let cook for 8 to 9 hours.

Stir and remove to serving bowls. This method works best if started before you go to bed. This way your oatmeal will be finished by morning.
