Adore oatmeal, but want more protein to get you through the day?
Make Porridged Eggs! Think more eggs and grits than brown sugar-oatmeal.

What You'll Need
  • 1/2 cup Uncooked oatmeal (not instant)
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Butter
  • Kosher salt and Fresh ground pepper
  1. In a small sauce pan, heat the water and the oats over high heat until boiling. Turn heat down and simmer for two minutes or so.

  3. Spoon carefully into a deep cereal bowl and add the butter to the top of the eggs. Salt and pepper to taste.

I'm happy to see this. I tried to do it a while ago, but didn't get the timing right. Thanks!
