This is a great study food- very easy to make but filling

Top Review by Cynna

I liked this. Didn't think I would but I let adventure take its course and hmmm. Surprisingly good. I went simple and just added salt and pepper. I ended up having to microwave it a bit longer as the white didn't want to set up but am pleased to report I had no yolk explosion in the process! Oatmeal was a tad overdone in the end but it was still tasty and filling. Thanks!
