I'm always trying out new ways (chia seeds! eggs!) to add more protein and nutrients and overall excitement to my morning oatmeal. This dish is inspired by Faith Gorsky of An Edible Mosaic. "I know at first savory oatmeal might seem a little strange," Gorsky writes, "but it's similar to savory grits or creamy polenta – give it a try!"



  • 1/4 cup Mccann Steel Cut Oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Egg, Fried
  • 1/2 oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 pinch Pepper, Black


1 Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat; add the onion to the oil and cook until softened and just starting to turn brown, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2 Stir in the oats, water, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil then turn heat down to low and simmer until the oats are tender, about 5 minutes.
3 Turn off heat and stir in the bacon and cheese.
4 Transfer to a bowl, and top with a fried egg and more black pepper.
