Savory Oats

When I first heard about savory oats, I was so skeptical. I mean…oats without fruit, or peanut butter?! But with onions, eggs, bacon, cheese?

I put off making this and trying it for so long. What. Was. I. Thinking?! Seriously, if you haven’t tried savory oats, do yourself a favor and go make some. Now.

Savory Oats (serves 1)

  • 1/2 c. rolled oats or 1/3 c. oatbran
  • 1 c. of milk and/or water
  • sliced onions
  • 1-2 slices of turkey bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-4 T. shredded cheese
  • coconut oil or butter
  • hot sauce (optional)
  • avocado (optional) 
  • shredded chicken (optional)
  • BBQ sauce (optional) 

Heat a skillet over medium heat.

In a pot, cook your oats or oatbran in your liquid (I prefer stovetop, but microwave should work too – if microwaving wait to make your oats until the end so they don’t get cold ;)).

Add the butter or coconut oil to the skillet, and cook your onions, bacon, and eggs (scrambled or fried…however you prefer).

Pour you oats into a bowl. Top with the onions, bacon and eggs. Top with shredded cheese and more butter, if you so desire. I love these with avocado and hot sauce on top. Yum! I’ve also tried shredded chicken and BBQ sauce with the onions but no eggs. There are so many different flavor combinations. Savory oats huevos rancheros? Why not?

Dig in!
