I was contemplating between an egg and oatmeal. Final decision: use both.
Then, I was contemplating between sweet and savory. Final decision: sweet.
Next, I was contemplating what to use for the sweet. Final decision: applesauce.
Finally, I was contemplating what would go with cinnamon. Final decision: that's easy, cinnamon!
And thus, Cinnamon Apple Egg Oats (I know, I know - not very creative) were born.......
Cinnamon Apple Egg Oats
1 serving of steel cut (or rolled oats)
Liquid for cooking the oats (I used about 1/3 cup water and 1/3 cup almond milk)
1 egg (use organic, vegetarian fed if possible)
About 1/3 cup organic, unsweetened applesauce
Bring the oats and cooking liquid to a boil in a small pan. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until the oats are creamy. Meanwhile, melt some butter in a non-stick pan and cook the egg until it is done to your likeness. When the oats are done, stir in cinnamon to taste. Scrape the oats into a bowl and top with the egg, the applesauce, and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
I was amazed at how good this dish tasted!
The daily question: Are you a breakfast eater?
I couldn't live with skipping any meal, but if for some reason I did have to skip one, it definitely would not be breakfast!
