You heard me correctly. This is what the Kiddo and I ate for dinner. I read about it in my local Kroger owned Grocery Store magazine in the Health Food section. We have eaten it before and it was an instant hit and now I know we will eat it regularly for dinner, or maybe breakfast. Who knows. This was delicious with scallions from the garden and fresh eggs from my ladies (hens).
I remembered to take a photo this time.
Bacon Cheese Oatmeal with Fried Eggs
1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
3 cups water
6 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled, divided
1 cup medium cheddar cheese, shredded, divided
1 -2 green onions, sliced
eggs - 1-2 per person, fried in butter to desired doneness (the kiddo likes over-hard, I like over-easy)
optional - Avocado, sliced; salsa
Boil water and add oats, reduce to simmer and cook about 5 minutes until done. Stir in 3/4 of the bacon, 3/4 of the cheese, all the scallions. Serve and top with eggs, garnish with reserved bacon and cheese, and avocado and salsa if you wish. Serves 4.
I forgot to reserve bacon for the garnish, much to the Kiddo's dismay. I made a side salad too. By the time I piled the salad on the plate, you couldn't see the oatmeal clearly so I didn't snap a photo of that. It was spinach and kale with some carrot curls, mushrooms and scallions. Tasty. I ended up with salsa on my portion too.
