Add all ingredients to bowl, mix well.
Spray non-stick spray (Pam, for example) in a skillet or frying pan.
Add all ingredients; scramble as you would with ordinary eggs.
When eggs-n-oats reach desired texture (just like scrambled eggs--wet, dry, somewhere in between), remove from heat, plate.
There are lots of options for seasoning, which I'm sure people will add to below. I prefer some combination of cayenne, hot sauce, and a moroccan spice blend I have at home. Some people make it sweet with honey, berries, bananas, cinnamon, splenda, agave nevtar, truvia, etc. Everyone feel free to add your preferred eggs-n-oats prep below!
My husband and I were really skeptical about this recipe. I used quick cooking since I didnt have rolled on hand, they soaked up the eggs quicker so it was really like a pancake. Added cheese and hot sauce with a side of bacon and my hubby made the Homer Simpson noise. They were perfect!!
i came here looking for a new way to cook my eggs this morning, and this is now my new favorite way to make eggs! what a great way to pair a protein w/a complex carb for bfast! love!! i made mine with onions, red peppers and salsa!
I loved this! I actually used 1/4c. of oats, and added an 1/8 c. of lowfat cottage cheese and ate it with unsweetened applesauce- sort of blintzy, or latke-like. Really a nice Sunday morning breakfast treat! Thanks! Oh- and I cooked it like a big pancake, flipping it halfway through- mmmm.
OMG this is amazing! I was a little apprehensive at first...oats and eggs...I just couldn't see it. However now that I have I am going to eat it every morning! I added a cup of frozen strawberries and 1/2 cup fresh blueberries and it tasted like a healthy breakfast desert YUM! - 8/2/11
I sautéed some green pepper, red onion, jalapeño, tomato and turkey bacon bits and then added the oaty eggs which I'd let sit while the rest cooked. I stirred in some cilantro at the end and it was absolutely delicious.
A very versatile recipe. Will try sweet tomorrow!
i was very pleased with this recipe. I just made it this morning. i added a tsp of brown sugar and some cinnamon. i also added a little syrup once it was finished. i cooked it like a pancake like someone else had mentioned.
When I first saw this I thought 'there is no way I will make this unless it has good reviews'! This was good. I sauteed spinach, green chilis, and diced tomato with tabasco and pepper and added to the mix. I used egg whites to keep out the fat since I am out of pan spray and had to add a bit of oil
When Rachel_Mac first posted this, I was skeptical. I ending up falling it love with the recipe after tweaking it to my liking! I change it up a bit here and there and always add about 5-6 tbsp of salsa! DELISH! Thanks for posting Rach! I eat Eggs-n-Outs about once a week. Limitless options.
Tried this and loved it! The oats added a 'grits' texture and the portion size it huge! I added in diced tomatoes, onions, celery, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cam't wait to try other variations! Thanks!
Made this for breakfast today. Added some dried onion, and some seasoning that has garlic powder and other spices and a dash of hot sauce. All i can say is wow! So good and easy! I will make this anytime that I cook breakfast, or make a big batch and have it ready. Very good!
Amazing!!! I was a little skeptical but after reading the great reviews I thought I would try it. I had it this morning and absolutley loved it. I wasn't sure what to put on it so I decided to go with the hot sauce. I used Franks Hot sauce on top of it and it turned out wonderful.
These are so good! They smelled almost vanilla-y when they were cooking. I just added a touch of honey & cinnamon. Not too sweet, perfect for breakfast! I would even make these for dinner with some fruit or veggies. This will definitely be a breakfast staple! Great protein to start the day.
THIS IS AN AMAZING DUO. I use oat bran, 1/4 cup and one egg and 0ne egg white substitute-1/3 cup. Whisked it together cooked on medium high and it makes a nice omelette. Today I added salsa, GREAT!.This will be a great pizza base cut in 8 wedges. Low calorie, Cooked in a 9 inch pan with lid. Thanks
I was skeptical, but I have to say it was very good. I mixed in a little laughing cow lite swiss added pepper and garlic powder..... and it was very satisfying and tasty! This one is a keeper. I can't wait to try new combinations!
I tried these this morning. I made them last night (since i don't have time in the morning) and heated them up in the morning. They were great! I used cinn. and some splenda and then added a bit of sugar free syrup when done. They were super!
I made eggs and oats this morning, i was nervous because i thought they would not go well together, but after trying it, i am in love it was amazing, i cut the recipe in half and added about a 1/4 cup of cheese. Making a sweet version tommorow. Will make over and over again, Thanks Rachel!
I had to try this, not knowing if I wanted eggs or oatmeal for breakfast. This combination of the two is wonderful. I used only half of the ingredients and I'm full! I added one big mushroom cut in tiny pieces, Parmesan cheese, Mrs Dash, garlic salt and pepper. Sprinkled with Tabasco.
Loved this but next time will make 1/2 recipe. Instead of milk I added 2 tbsp of yogurt ranch chipotle dressing (Walmart) 25 cal. and sauteed zucchini, red onion and baby bella mushrooms to put in or on top, and a little salsa and greek yogurt and cilantro! This would make a great lunch or dinner!
Made this in the Cuisinart sandwich grill, so it was handy, finger food to bring to work and share, pass all around. Honey and cinnamon were what I'd added. Maybe next time more honey, or nuts as well. Apples would be great!
I loved it. I added some pumpkin pie spice, 1 pk of stevia and a few drops of vanilla extract. Voila, french toast oats and eggs. I can see that the possibilities are endless. Thanks again, Rachel Mac.
I highly recommend this recipe! I tried some protein-pancake recipes that were really disappointing, but I am SO glad I gave this a try, it was very yummy. Great texture. A+ nutrition. I used coconut oil in the pan, and topped w/honey and agave. Perfect post-workout meal. Thanks SP!
WOW! I went the sweet route/pancake style with 1/2C diced pineapple and 1 tbsp maple syrup. So delicous and FILLING! I was skeptical at first, but this could really turn into quick, filling personal pancakes for weekend mornings. Thanks!
YUM! I tried this both ways, sweet and savory. For the sweet, I used 1/4 c egg beaters, 1/4 c oats, a dash of cinnamon, 1 packet of Truvia, & splash of both vanilla & maple flavors. I cooked it, let it cool a minute or so & then topped it with a tablespoon of vanilla ff yogart, cinnamon & raisins!
Absolutely fantastic breakfast! I'm always looking out for tasty, quick and filling breakfasts for on the go mornings, and this fits the bill perfectly. I added some grated cheese and pepper for a little extra taste. Delicious!
Absolutely incredible! I made this yesterday for breakfast using sultanas, grated apple and just a little brown sugar and it was delicious & FILLING! Making it today again, adding grated vegetables and some herbs... will be a regular menu item! Thank you for sharing such a great recipe.
Looks like a good way to get protein and healthy grains (oats) into my breakfast. Been looking for new options for a long time. I will probably use a sweet version for breakfasts, but the savory ideas would be good for a quick and light supper. Will try this for breakfast tomorrow.
I made this for breakfast today. Wasn't sure whether to use Old-Fashioned rolled oats or the Quick-cooking ones. I opted for Old-fashioned since they are my favorite. I added 2 tbsp of applesauce, some cinnamon, and a packet of Splenda. Delicious! Definitely going to try it savory next time.
This was very good...will be making again! I also added some minced onion, black pepper, hot sauce and garlic powder to it before cooking...then I sprinkled a small amnt. of shredded low fat cheddar cheese when it was finished cooking.
Finally made this today and I loved it. I went with a little Splenda, cinnamon and nutmeg. I want to try spicing it up tomorrow, but today's was so good, I'll probably make it the same. Thanks for sharing.
I made this today and since the comments are split between sweet and savoury, I split my plate with white corn & black bean salsa on one side, mixed (frozen) berries on the other. Both were good options, and my taste buds are still thoroughly confused! Great start to the day, either way. Thanks!
Limitless options!! Had some this morning... forgot to add the milk in though. Cooked like a pancake great texture and consistency. Topped with cinnamon and thinned honey yum yum my kids even liked it
i have done with only with cooking my oatmeal and then when it is done I add a 1/2 c. of egg whites and stir barley over the heat, and add in walnuts and brown sugar, if you keep it on the heat for a short time it does become the texture of eggs but is creamy oatmeal with xtra protein
thanks i found recipes and just wanted to try it so i only had simply harvest instant oatmeal (apples with cinnamon) I love it i can't wait to get some more oats to make the way i would like it, a lttle taco sauce, onions tomatoes etc. - 4/23/10
This dish reminds me of what my mother used to make, she used crushed crackers, added a little bit of cheese and green onions. We would pour red chile over the "cracker" eggs YUM! This was very delicious; I think I may try to let the egg mixture sit before cooking. Thanks for sharing.
I like to eat breakfast after going to the gym in the morning, so I turned this recipe into muffins, and it works wonderfully. I double the recipe and it makes 6 muffins. So far I've mixed in apples and spices, frozen berries and spices, and pumpkin and spices. Planning on doing banana-walnut soon.
I used 2 eggs, a tablespoon of french vanilla creamer instead of the milk and a packet of instant apple cinnamon oatmeal. I cooked it pancake style and even burnt it tasted pretty okay. I plan to try the savory style later in the week.
Great change! I made mine with 2 eggs(substitute), 1/4 c oats, and FF milk...then topped with my own combo of 50/50 honey and hot sauce.....love the difference in texture and flavor,other than the average veggie-egg combo! Now I'm ready to experiment further!
I loved this recipe! I have been needing to add oatmeal to lower cholesterol in my diet. It made so much! I had to split it in half. I like to add 1/4 tsp. onion powder, 1/8 tsp. dried dill, and 2 turns on the cracked pepper mill, and top with 1 T. low-fat shredded cheddar while still warm. YUM
Awesome base, beautiful versatility. I just had to add the two yolks I separated, so I blended them with guava paste (while adding some salt to the rest). WOW! Sweet and salty, the wholesome feeling of oats and the satisfaction of egg.... thank you!!!
I would have never thought to mix together but this has become my lifesaver. I used to have plain egg whites and plain oatmeal. Boring. Thanks to this recipe I now mix 1/4c quick oats and 1/2c liquid egg whites along with 1 TBSP salsa. Fabulous. I have it almost every morning.
This is REALLY good!! I was sceptical, but it is very yummy! Chewy! You get the sense that you are eating something substantial. I added one small onion and 3 mushrooms, all sliced very thin, along with mild Zip and a couple of shakes of hot sauce. Soon to become a favorite breakfast!!
This is now my favorite versatile anytime recipe. A jumping off place for breakfast eggs, dessert crust, a granola, and it's super friendly to go with any spice/herb combination for many different world cuisines! I use milk only for pancakes or a cookie with cinnamon, peanut butter and raisins.
