Oh So Yummy, Eggy Oats

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.

  1. This is a really intriguing recipe. I wasn't sure I was interested until you put the cottage cheese on top. It is a way to get me to eat eggs, which are about my last choice for breakfast, usually. I'm hoping this would work with regular rolled oats, because that's all I ever buy.

    Well, I'll be honest. My comment was going to be "no comment". Never heard of such a thing and it sounded weird. That being said, I know oats are healthy, so I decided to humor us both ๐Ÿ™‚ I made my own spinoff.
    I made the oatmeal and put it in hot nonstick pan with misto. I cracked an egg on top and sprinkled salt pepper, and a spice mix I like to use on omlets. I mixed it around until egg was cooked and transferred to bowl.
    Yum! I liked it better than oatmeal! No sugar, more protein :-). Try it people!
