Savory Oatmeal
  • 2 medium slices bacon (cooked to a crisp and crumbled)
  • ½ cup Positively Free Instant Oats
  • ¾ cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh chives
  • ½ cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cook bacon and prepare chives and tomatoes. Set aside.
  2. Bring stock to boil over medium-high heat. Add oats and cook 3-5 minutes. Add more stock if necessary to keep at mashed potato consistency.
  3. Stir in cheddar, chives, salt and pepper. Taste for seasoning.
  4. Just before serving, stir in the crumbled bacon and top with tomatoes. Serves 3-4 as a side dish.
