So one day I wanted something comforting but wasn’t sure what I had at home that would fit the bill. Oatmeal had the right texture and filling capacity but I did not want something sweet (I know, shocked me to. I don’t know what was up). Eureka! Savory Oatmeal. I’m pretty sure I am not the first person to think of it (my Scottish ancestors eat a lot of oatmeal I’m sure), but I don’t remember seeing it before. Topped off with a fried egg and served with some vegetable juice it fit the bill just fine.
I used Italian seasoning and of course garlic but you could use just about any combination that tickles your fancy.
½ cup rolled oats
1 cup water
Pinch salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried herbs
Dab of butter
Mix the oats, water, and seasoning in a microwavable bowl. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. Remove and stir in the butter. Enjoy!
