This may sound really strange, but stay with me here. I’ve seen many recipes for oats mixed with egg whites or a whole egg. It adds creaminess and protein so I figured i’d give it a try. First I tried to make it on the stove top. That took way too long and the oats were still hard after all that time stirring the pot! We all know I like fast recipes. Then I thought i’d do the same, but in the microwave. Result? Really mushy. The texture was just off. I wasn’t sure when to add the egg white and if I should put it back in the microwave to cook more.
Then I thought of another plan of action and it was just amazing! It is my new favorite breakfast or lunch -savory eggy oats. It is perfect. It might not look like a 5 star dish and may sound strange, but i’m telling you- try it!!! It’s high in protein and super filling. And even better than that, it’s done in under 2 minutes!
Savory Eggy Oats
1/4 cup dry quick oats
1/2 cup water
Stir together in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 50 seconds.
Take out of microwave and top with 1-2 eggs or 1 egg and 1-2 egg whites. You don’t need to, but I make a little crack in the yolk with a knife.
Place back into microwave for another 60-70 seconds till egg is cooked to your liking.
I like to then break and mix the whole thing together a bit and sprinkle with some sea salt and black pepper.
Then add 1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese on top.
The cold cottage cheese makes the whole thing really creamy and perfect.
