Savory Oats Recipe – Simple and Delicious!

Summer Yule
These savory oats are topped with eggs, smoked cheese, guacamole, wilted spinach, and just a smidge of bacon. Why settle for a soggy bowl of cold breakfast cereal when you can have this?!?

  • ¼ c steel-cut oatmeal, dry
  • c baby spinach
  • 1 slice thick-cut bacon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ounce smoked cheese, shredded
  • 2 ounces guacamole (I used a store-bought single-serve cup.)


  • Cook the oatmeal with water according to the package directions. It will take 30-45 minutes.
  • Wilt the spinach on the stovetop with a little water. Set it aside.
  • Cook the strip of bacon. Crumble it when cooked.
  • Fry the two eggs in the bacon grease left in the pan.
  • To serve, put the cooked oats in a bowl. Top with the shredded cheese. (The heat of the oats will melt the cheese.) Pile the wilted spinach, guacamole, eggs, and crumbled bacon on top. Enjoy it!


This is a level 2 recipe (transition or weight maintenance). Dry steel-cut oatmeal will run you about 150 calories per ¼-cup, so I’d skip the oats to drop this dish to level one. This move preserves the major sources of protein (eggs, cheese) and the produce.
Without the oatmeal, you are left with a pretty typical example of a low-carb/keto breakfast. Cutting back on grains is one easy way to reduce the calories in a meal while keeping the nutrient-dense components that promote satiety.
This recipe lends itself well to scaling up if you are feeding a household. It's very easy to customize this to meet the needs of individuals in your family without making separate meals.
