This recipe gives a slightly different twist to the usual way that oatmeal is eaten as breakfast. I love to eat oatmeal for breakfast and I love to eat eggs for breakfast but never combined together so I wanted to give this recipe a try and I was pleasantly surprised.
Oats in general are a fantastic way to start off your day and keep you full until the afternoon. Oatmeal is high in fiber and protein giving you energy, benefiting your digestive system and great for weight loss. Eggs are also a good source of protein and help to fill you up also. The cheddar cheese and scallions add to the savory taste of the recipe. I added in a tablespoon of raw honey as an option as I usually like a sweetness in my regular oatmeal so it worked well for me in this recipe also. This will all depend on your own personal taste.
Pour the cup of water into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the oats and pinch of salt and pepper. Give a little stir and reduce the heat, letting it simmer for 5 minutes.
In a non stick frying pan heat coconut oil or other oil over medium heat. Gently add the egg and cook for 3 minutes, making sure the egg is still runny.
Place the oatmeal in a bowl. If you would like to add some sweetness, then stir in the honey and top with the cheese, egg and scallions. Enjoy!
