Savory Oatmeal Recipe #1 – Yumm!

One of the goals on my 101 list is to try 5 savory oatmeal recipes. If you’re not a foodie like me, savory refers to meal-type items, as opposed to sweets. At least that’s my understanding, from all the cooking shows I watch!

So I got this idea when searching for inspiration for my 101 list. I was intrigued. I’m on a quest to eat oatmeal every day, because it is so healthy for you. But I basically make it with raisins and cinnamon every day and even though I love oatmeal, it can get boring day after day. Going savory some of the time would mean I could mix things up and maybe have oatmeal for lunch now and then. But the whole idea sounded kind of weird to me. Still, I like to try new things…

So today, Sunday, I didn’t get to eat breakfast till after noon, so it was really more of a brunch. So a good time to try savory oatmeal, right?

I made the first recipe here, cooking my oatmeal in vegetable broth and then topping it with an over easy fried egg, a bit of seasoning and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. It was super yummy! I’d eat it again in a heartbeat.

So, one down… four to go on the first goal I’ve worked on on the list. Yay!
