Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.

Oatmeal Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Oatmeal Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
