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
1/4 c quick oats
1/4 onion, sliced
1/2 pepper, sliced
- Saute the peppers and onions until soft. Season with salt and pepper.
- 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.
- While the egg is cooking, cook the oatmeal. I do it in the microwave, just because it’s quick and easy.
- 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.
