Oatmeal has always been a staple in my kitchen pantry—it’s cheap, easy, and delicious. This Savory Oats recipe is more delicious than I could have ever expected. You can’t even find fancy oats like this at nice restaurants around town. When I first tried Parmesan oats, my life was changed forever. Who knew that mixing something savory, warm, and peppery with our Fool’s Paradise Hot Sauce could be so lovely?! This bowl can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and you can swap ingredients to suit your mood and diet.
Savory Cracked Pepper + Parmesan Oats
With pickled onion, lemony arugula and a jammy egg
- 1 cup quick cooking rolled oats
- 1/3 cup of parmesan
- 2 cups lemony arugula
- 1 jar Quick Pickled Onions
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp cracked pepper
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Merfs’ Fools Paradise Hot Sauce (to taste)
- Add your 2 cups of arugula to a bowl with 1 tbsp of olive oil, give it a quick mix and set aside.
- Start two pans to boil on your stove, one for your oats (2 cups of water and 1/4 tsp of salt) and one for your jammy egg (enough to cover the eggs fully)
- Once your oat pot is at a rolling boil, add 1 cup of oats and stir occasionally for 3-4 minutes, until you reach your desired consistency. I prefer mine creamy, so I let them continue to cook for up to 6 minutes. Mix in parmesan when the oats are cooked to your liking.
- Use a slotted spoon and add your eggs one at a time into your boiling egg pot, lower the temperature to medium once they are both in. Set a time for 6.5 minutes, once that goes off, immediately pop your eggs into an ice bath. Once cool, crack and peel gently from the bottom of the egg, where the air pocket is located. Half each egg.
- At this point your oats should be finished cooking, your arugula marinated and your egg peeled and halved.
- Begin to set up your two bowls, layer oats first, then arugula to the side, the quick pickled onion, 1 jammy egg, a dash of cracked pepper and Merfs’ Fool’s Paradise to taste. *reminder! This sauce is a 10/10 on the hot scale…act accordingly!
