Have you tried the cookies?

They are oatstanding.

I know I haven’t said it in a while, but it’s still as true as ever…I love oatmeal. All ways. I have moved away from it of late; but I’ve come to realize that it’s been TOO long. Last week I had such an intense craving for oatmeal that I broke down and bought some while I was out! It wasn’t great…but it was exactly what I needed. And I’m pretty sure I’ve eaten it every day since….and not even fancy. It has just been a bowl of oats that I cooked. That’s it. No milk. No sugar. No fruit or nuts. Just. Oatmeal. Plain.

I know. Talk about hardcore.

This morning, with the lovely break in the hot and steamy weather, I broke out the oatmeal and decided to make something savory and wonderful.

Nothing fancy. Just easy. Oatmeal. Eggs. Peppers and onions.

Savory Oatmeal Bowl

Ingredients
1/4 c quick oats
1 egg
1/4 onion, sliced
1/2 pepper, sliced

Method

  1. Saute the peppers and onions until soft. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Crack the egg in the same pan. You don’t have to remove the veg. Cook anyway you find most delicious. I personally like over-easy. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. While the egg is cooking, cook the oatmeal. I do it in the microwave, just because it’s quick and easy.
    1. Place oats in a microwave safe bowl or dish.
    2. Cover with the appropriate amount of liquid.
    3. Microwave according to package instructions. o1
  4. To assemble: Once the oats are done, place the cooked egg, onion and pepper slices on top. If desired, drizzle with sriracha or ketchup. Enjoy.  o2
