- ½ Cup steel-cut oats, such as Quaker Quick 3-Minute
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1 large egg
- 2 slices turkey bacon
- 2 Tablespoons shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
- 1 Tablespoon sliced scallions
- 1 Tablespoon French fried onions
Prepare the oatmeal according to package directions and set aside.
Coat a small nonstick pan with nonstick cooking spray and heat the pan over medium heat. Add the bacon, cook until browned, and then remove. In the same pan, cook the egg until the white is set and the yolk is still runny, 3 to 4 minutes. Top the oatmeal with the egg, bacon, cheese, scallions, fried onions, and some salt and pepper.
