Microwave Egg Oatmeal- Pair eggs and oatmeal for an easy way to add some extra protein to your breakfast. Follow this recipe to learn how to cook oatmeal with an egg!
Just popping in with a quick recipe tip for you guys. As you know, I’m a big fan of oatmeal in the morning. Oats + fruit + nut butter = a great start to my day. Lately I’ve been focusing on making sure I get a good amount of protein at breakfast and thought I’d give the egg-in-oatmeal idea a whirl. Have you ever tried an egg in oatmeal? Oatmeal and eggs make the perfect pair. I know a lot of people like to use just egg whites, but I decided to just toss the whole thing in there and see how it turned out.
The first time I did it, I didn’t use enough milk. I wanted it to feel more like I was still eating oatmeal, rather than eggs with oats in them. Once I got the ratio right, it turned out great. With basically no extra effort I can add an extra 6 grams of protein to my breakfast. Win.
