Oatmeal Porridge (With Egg)

Total Time

A hearty, creamy oatmeal with extra protein makes a filling tasty breakfast. No eggy taste here! I used a medium egg because I accidently had them, you could probably double and keep the egg at 1.


  1. soak the oats in 1/2 cup water overnight (i add a spoonful of plain yogurt to make more digestible).
  2. in the morning add the other 1/2 cup water and bring to a boil, stir in cinnamon and simmer about 5-10 minutes until thick and tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. at the very end turn off heat, crack the egg into the oatmeal and stir stir stir until smooth and creamy. the heat from the oats cooks the egg.
  4. add the sweetener of your choice and top with fruit or nuts if you want.
  5. *the soaking overnight is totally optional! i do to cut down on cook time.

Seriously...everyone should try this oatmeal!!! I stumbled upon this recipe last night, and I have to admit, I was pretty skeptical...it sounded so weird! But I love to try different kinds of oatmeal all the time, and my curiosity got the better of me, so I made some this morning for breakfast. And WOW! It is SO, SO, SO good!!! (I added some sliced peaches and only used 2 tsp of brown sugar.) What a great way to get some extra protein in the morning along with the yummy grains I love to eat for breakfast! Thanks for the recipe! I think this will become a daily habit!
