savory oatmeal
  • ½ cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1 or 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sharp cheddar, shredded (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon scallions, thinly sliced (more or less to taste)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper, to taste
  1. In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add oats and pinch of salt and pepper. Stir, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Coat lightly with oil. Add egg (or eggs, if desired) and cook until white is set and yolk is still runny, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir cheese into hot oatmeal until melted. Pour oatmeal in a bowl and top with egg(s) and scallion greens.
