Healthy Savory Oatmeal Recipes: Sausage & Tomato Oat-sotto, Sunny Morning Savory Oats

Aug 25 2016
Oatmeal is one of the most satisfying foods around, and steel-cut oats provide a heartiness that's perfect with savory ingredients! So step outside your comfort zone, and give this new spin on oatmeal a try...

HG Tip: To save time, make a large batch of the oatmeal itself ahead of time. Just bring 5 cups of water to a boil in a medium-large pot. Add 1 cup steel-cut oats and 1/8 tsp. salt, and return to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer. Cover and cook for 1 hour, or until thickened. Makes 4 servings.
