    The recipe is excellent, although I have made one change. As it is too easy to get a crispy edge on a fried egg, I poach the egg.

    Would have added more spices but it was my first time making it. Also thought it wouldn't be filling so I made 2 servings which I couldn't finish. Great meal to get the day started 10/10 would make again

    This was good - I've never actually thought of having savory oatmeal for breakfast so this was a nice change of pace. I used a garlic pepper blend to season it instead of scallions because I didn't have any scallions on hand and I really liked that. I think that with just the scallions it might have been a little bland. Anyway, this was a tasty.

    Oatmeal does not need the addition of any sweetener. Adding sugar defeats the purpose of having a savory breakfast meal. My husband is diabetic and eats this meal on a regular basis. To flavor the oatmeal further, he adds Tabasco, garlic salt, and/or other spices. He has also been known to add chopped ham, sausage, bacon, etc. The meal is substantial and stays with him all morning, and his numbers have improved greatly with this as part of his standard meal routine.

    Very good! I like to use chicken or veggie broth instead of water to give the oatmeal more flavor.

    Very hardy and warming. Add a little amount of sugar to the oatmeal or Truvia. This makes the dish truly sweet and savory. Without the sweetening, oatmeal is very bland.

    My new favorite breakfast. Use old fashioned oats and they don't turn to mush like quick cook (much better texture than the mush of quick cook). This really sticks with you through the morning. I leave out the scallions and it's a 3 minute breakfast.

I'm in the mood for:

  • breakfast
  • lunch
  • dinner
  • dessert
  • an appetizer
  • a cocktail
