If you haven’t tried savory oatmeal, DO IT.

    Your post piqued my interest so I tried it this morning. I went easy on ingredients because I was still trying to wrap my head around savory oatmeal and was about half way through the bowl when I realized hey, this is actually good. My brain was just stuck in the oatmeal must be sweet mindset.

    I made steel cut oats added some cheese, Applegate chicken and maple sausage, a cooked egg and a little sea salt and pepper. A whopping 28 grams of protein, which is a lot more than my usual Greek yogurt breakfast...very filling. Now that I've tried it, I'm going to experiment with different ingredients.

    Thanks for the post. I've never heard of this until now and expect it to become a staple in my diet. 🙂

    Tried another combo tonight. Steel cut oats, extra lean hamburger, green beans, a bit of havarti cheese, and a dash of garlic salt and some pepper all mixed together. A--mazing! Reminds me of tater tot casserole, which I love. This post has opened a whole new world for me, lol.

    I haven't tried to make it myself but I ordered it twice at a fancy restaurant where they cooked it with cod, drizzled with basil oil and garnished with deep fried cod skin. Don't know how they got the texture to be similar to risotto.

    I suspect you could get that risotto like texture if you used steel cut oats.

    Once I ate steel cut oats, the flaked stuff seems like paste. For sure, steel cut would give a risotto texture and I like this idea
