Savory Oatmeal with Egg

Breakfast will never be the same.

January is Oatmeal Month! Oats are such a great ingredient to incorporate into a well-balanced diet and naturally gluten-free. Did you know that you can have oatmeal in a savory way? If you didn’t then you need to try this delicious cheesy oatmeal that’s topped with a fried egg. It really hits the spot when you want something full of flavor, delicious, and tasty. The oats are cooked with water and parmesan cheese and then topped with fresh veggies and a fried egg. It’s a simple hearty breakfast that’s so easy to customize and if you are not a sweet person, this is an ideal breakfast for you. Mix it up with your favorite toppings for a delicious and healthy start to your day!

The next time you are whipping up a batch of oatmeal, try this savory addition rather than the traditional sweet or mix in some pesto, sriracha, or bacon. Whatever you do to make it your own, don’t forget to send Nitasha pictures of what variation of savory you decide to try with your oatmeal.
