Savory Eggs & Oatmeal

Oatmeal is one of the most satisfying carbs out there (thanks to it being fiber-filled!) and it’s a great way to start your morning when paired with a lean protein.  Our Mom used to make oatmeal for us every Sunday morning (it’s no wonder why we’re fairly routine girls and like to have a schedule for everything!), and there was something about the warm, hearty meal that always put a smile on our faces.  To this day we love oatmeal, but now we are always whipping up new creations to put a new spin on an old fave.

Since we tend to lead with our sweet tooth, we asked our intern Kelsi Wildermuth for her favorite savory twist.  She presented us with this Savory Eggs & Oatmeal is made with a soft cooked egg, lean ham bits, and a light sprinkle of cheddar cheese for some calcium and delicious flavor.  It’s topped off with scallions, and cracked pepper.  And don’t fret, if you don’t eat ham, like us, simply mixing in the cottage cheese and the cheese and egg make it plenty savory and delicious!

Wondering what’s so good about oatmeal?  For starters, it contains beta-glucan. This is a type of fiber that helps lower cholesterol when eaten regularly. Oats are also rich in folic acid and iron. Top it with an egg for protein and staying power.
