Fried Oatmeal

Fried... what?

That's right. Oatmeal. This is walking on the wild side, people, so prepare yourselves.

It's not creamy, no. Instead, this is a yummy, yummy breakfast of clumpy clusters. Think muffin hunks, or a cross between a pancake and regular oatmeal. It's for people who don't like the texture of porridge, or for wierdos like me.

Made from a simple batter, let rest for 5 minutes, and fried up just like scrambled eggs. Whatever it is, I call it delicious, fast, easy, and an inexpensive breakfast for a cold day.

Fried Oatmeal

1/2 cup oat bran cereal (find it near the oatmeal and cream of wheat)
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking oats)
2 tablespoons brown sugar (I used substitute)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch salt
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

Combine all ingredients and let rest 5 minutes. Butter a large, hot skillet and add batter. Stir around regularly, as you would scramble eggs, until mixture starts to clump and is no longer liquid.

Serve hot with a pat of butter, along with a drizzle of maple syrup and dollop of milk, if desired.

I am wondering if this would work as a savoury breakfast? With some fried peppers and spring onions and a good sprinkling of nutritional yeast. I think that I need to try!

Well that does certainly sound interesting--I'd love to hear how it turns out!
