Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Ours was pretty eventful, but I’ll get to recaps in upcoming posts. Today I wanted to tell you about a breakfast that Dave and I eat quite a bit, it’s called “eggy oats.” We tend to use the recipe from ‘running with spoons,’ this girl knows her oats. The best part about this recipe is that it’s a base and you can do so much with it depending on your preference. I’ve had it sweet with banana or berries along side some sort of nut butter, but I have to admit that my favorite way to have it is savory.
I just realized that you can’t see the eggy oats at all in this photo. Believe me, they’re there, under all those delicious toppings. We like to make our eggy oats savory by topping it with a quarter of an avocado, some cheese, an over easy egg, and a little bit of salsa (season to your taste with pepper-this photo doesn’t reveal it, but I’m a pepper fiend).
Once you break into it, the yolk makes everything that much more creamy and delicious. Plus there is so much protein in this dish, when I have it for breakfast I’m always full until early afternoon.
Let me know if you make it, and if you have any suggestions or feedback.
