Steel-cut oats are far superior to instant or rolled oats. The texture is better and they're less processed, which means they're probably better for you. The problem is that they take 30 minutes to cook, and who has that kind of time in the morning? But, cooking them overnight in a slow cooker? Problem solved. Recipe here.

15. Spinach and Caramelized Onion Frittata With a Sweet Potato Crust

Why use flour and tons of butter to make a crust, when you can use sweet potatoes instead? For maximum crispiness, heat a small skillet, add a slice of leftover frittata, then warm it in a hot oven until it's heated through. Recipe here.
