Bacon, Egg and Cheese Oatmeal

28 Mar

BeFunky_IMG_2647.jpgYes, people yes! There IS another way to make oatmeal! Maybe I’m way too late to figure this out but savory oatmeal is totally a thing. After eating oatmeal sweet for years and years I finally realized I can turn it into a breakfast bowl. A little research on the internet machine proved that people do make savory oatmeal and I was not the inventor of it (which was disappointing) and gave me lots of ideas. This is the first of the many experiments. I say give it a try even if you’re not the biggest fan of oatmeal; it might change your mind šŸ˜‰

 

Ingredients

1 egg

1 slice of turkey bacon (chopped)

3 tablespoons of pepper jack cheese (shredded or cut inĀ small cubes)

1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal

3/4 cup water

 

Note: As you can see this is just an individual portion. Of course you can multiple the recipe.

 

In a small saucepan crisp the turkey bacon and then set aside. Using the same saucepan cook the oatmeal with water. While that’s bubbling, cook your egg in another pan however you want. I love over easy eggs so that’s how I made mine, you can also make it sunny side up, poached, or scrambled. Once all the water is gone and oatmeal is soft and cooked; addĀ pepper jackĀ cheese and bacon stirring it constantly. Pour it in a bowl and add the egg on top. Yum!
