Cold Weather Breakfast: Oatmeal with Egg

Here is a recipe for oatmeal. Yup, oatmeal. Although it is one of the simplest breakfasts to make, oftentimes it is bland and uninspired. This recipe is amazing: rich, smooth, full of flavor, protein, all that good stuff.

Oatmeal with Egg (yes, EGG)

+ Make oats per the directions on the package (usually it is something to the effect of 1 cup of water to 1/2 cup of oats, with a pinch of salt. Those are the directions on mine, anyways. *note: use quick oats, not instant.
+ Once they are almost done, add a splash of vanilla extract (I didn't measure, but you probably need 1/2 tsp. make it to taste: if you like vanilla add more, if you don't, you could add cinnamon or another spice of your choice) and 1 or 2 tablespoons of brown sugar (I only add one tbsp, but I don't love sugary breakfasts. If you like it sweet, add more).
+ Once everything is incorporated and the oats are fully cooked, crack an egg into the mixture and stir. Fast. I usually stir for 30 seconds to 1 minute - at this point the egg will be totally incorporated. Delicious.

  1. Yum sounds delicious! But sweet spices with egg? That's quite odd...Nevertheless, I'd try it!
