Three ounces of oats is one cup. Three ounces of whole wheat flour is about 3/4 cup. I sauteed the onions in bacon grease, because that's what was in the frying pan and added some smoked turkey (I have a big carnivore in the house and it sounded like a really good fit with the sage), sharp cheddar on top and popped into the oven. I used the milk option. The crust is flavorful, but would benefit from the addition of salt. I had a difficult time getting the pie out of the pan and if I make this again will give the pan a spritz of cooking spray before adding the crust.
