    Definitely need to try savoury porridge. Also I eat about 1/3 of a cup of oats ( 40 g) and it does me just fine. Anything more then that ( including toppings) is just too much

    This is me too. I kind of like the idea, but can’t quite wrap my mind around vegetables in oatmeal.

    I’m the same...intellectually I can’t see why it wouldn’t be good and having been brought up by a Scots mother I’m no stranger to salt rather than sugar on porridge.

    I just can’t get myself to try it, though! Maybe I’ll start with trying a little marmite stirred in and a sprinkle of cheese before I go the whole veg route! Although the thought of a seasoned carrot purée just popped into my head while typing this! 🤔

    My savory porridge is usually made with whole ground corn, otherwise known as grits or polenta. Oats are usually made with milk and fruit. But a couple days ago, after measuring the grain, I discovered the milk was curdled. So I made this instead.

    Hmmm, after watching a couple videos and checking a bunch of recipes, I might just see if I can throw some savory oatmeal concoction together for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks for sharing! Fried onions, spinach and an egg, maybe a little shredded cheese....sounds like a plan to me. :) It'll cut down on my sugar(always have fruit in my morning bowl) and up my protein, which I have a hard time reaching most days.

    My take on this
    I made oatmeal with spinach, onions, 2 egg whites and about 1 T. of shredded cheddar cheese, nothing else. I was going to make 1 whole egg instead but am not crazy about the whole runny yolk thing. But on a whole, it's not bad, scale of 1-10 about a 5.5. :) And I'll definitely be trying different versions to take it out of the bland level.
    On the upside less calories and sugar, more protein than my usual oatmeal breakfast.

    I think I should get back into making savory oats again. My favorite is oats with hot sauce, sour cream and turkey bacon.

    I make something very similar, steel cut oats, green onion, bacon bits, havarti cheese and sriracha sauce. Yum!

    In my family anything that can be cooked or served with rice, can be cooked or served with oats.

    pretty much this, though, I suggest steel cut because it behaves more like rice.

    I eat oatmeal with chicken breast and dress it up with some spices. Everyone around me is grossed out by it, but it tastes good to me.

    Yesterday afternoon I was craving something salty, warm and creamy. We were at my MIL's house. I microwaved quick oats and topped them with a drizzle of soy sauce and a laughing cow creamy Swiss scattered over the top. If I had fresh cilantro or flat leaf parsley at that moment I would have added a sprinkle of that. It hit the spot. When at home, for a quick meal, I often add "shredded" canned chicken breast to my oats.

    Great ideas, thanks for sharing! I brought two big boxes of oats last year from Costco but I now have low carb breakfasts so I haven't really used much of it. I will definitely be giving this a go

    Agreed. Curry is really good when served over oatmeal.

    Might just be me, actually for sure it is just me, but all of the above combos belong in the "weird things you do with food" thread :)

    Oh, yes, I agree. We generally only eat steel cut.

    I'm going to try to bring myself to try savory oatmeal even though it goes against everything my brain says oatmeal should be. I'm trying to eat more vegetables and this would be a good way to do it if I liked it.

    This idea fascinates me, I'll have to try it at least once. I love oatmeal with apples, cinnamon, and maple syrup or almond milk so it would definitely be a change!
