Savory Oats

by Meghann on July 1, 2011

Finally FINALLY I succeeded at trying the savory egg/oatmeal combo I’ve been drooling over for a year now and – you know what? – it was GOOD!


I’ve seen the egg on oatmeal combo floating around for a while. I didn’t have a recipe, so I just took the concept and ran with my own take on it.


The oatmeal came first.

I started with some chopped carrot, radishes, and onions on the stovetop. I cooked them with a little olive oil until they were soft. Then I added 1/2 a cup of rolled oats, 1/2 a cup water, 1/2 a cup of milk, and a generous shake of a random seasoning mix from the cabinet. Once the oats were cooked, I threw in a handful of spinach and folded the spinach in until it blended with the oats.


Next, the eggs.

Those were easy. Just fried them up like I normally would in a frying pan. I tried to keep both yolks runny, but accidentally busted one. Oopss….


Finally, the toppings.

A spoonful of salsa. A sprinkle of feta cheese. I was good to go.


What was missing: Siracha(!!!) and more salt. It was a little bland, but that was my fault. Besides the blandness, I was a big fan. In fact, I think the combination passed the ‘Derek Friendly’ test. Perhaps I’ll make it for dinner for him sometime soon? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Any fun combinations out there you’ve been dying to try, but still haven’t gotten around to it?

It’s FRIDAY! It’s not just Friday – it’s the Friday of a 3 day weekend! (Or 4 day weekend in Derek’s case. He says hi from the comfort of the bed he is still currently sleeping in by the way.) For the first time in a while we have no plans for the long weekend. more ยป
