For this savory oatmeal recipe, steel-cut Irish oats are cooked with vegetable broth and almond milk, then topped with turkey bacon, sharp cheddar cheese, and sliced green onions.
The finishing touch is a dollop of creamy Greek yogurt. Crack some fresh pepper over everything, grab a spoon, and dig in.
Eggs aren’t the only option for a savory breakfast anymore — although, a sunny-side up or soft-boiled egg would make an incredible topper to this breakfast bowl.
