Not sweet. Not dripping with maple syrup, or topped with luscious blueberries or banana slices. Not even sprinkled with a little brown sugar.
Instead, topped with a sunny-side-up egg, cheddar cheese, a sprinkling of green onion, and a dash of salt and pepper. A little something like this bright bowl of breakfast cheer:

I've read about savory versions of oatmeal for months but never quite had the guts to try it for myself. After yesterday's nauseating adventures with sugar (someone maybe went a little overboard with Easter sweets), I wanted something satisfying and slightly salty to start my morning today.
It's this easy: Just prepare plain oats (old-fashioned or quick-cooking) with water in either the microwave or on the stovetop. Meanwhile, fry up an egg. Top the cooked oatmeal with the egg, sprinkled some cheese and onions (chives would be great, too), and some S&P. Break that runny and sunny yolk, mix, and devour! Paired with a banana on the side, this was just what the doctor ordered for breakfast today. Natural, packed with protein, and low in sugar.
Some sugar cramps aside, I'm happy to report that I'm feeling much better today. :) Hope you're recovering nicely as well!
