Sausage and egg savory oatmeal is a twist on the traditional breakfast oatmeal with hearty egg and sausage added in for a yummy start to the day.
Have you ever made a savory night cereal??!! Well if you haven’t, this is the recipe to try! My husband AND kids thought it turned out amazing…which is amazing it unto itself right. 😉 If you love breakfast for dinner, give our night cereal sausage and egg savory oatmeal a try next time, I bet you’ll be surprised at how much you like it too! Special thanks goes out to got milk? Food Loves Milk for sponsoring this post so we could share our night cereal recipe with you.
Just like cereal, and sweet oatmeal you may have made before, this night cereal is made with milk AND has milk poured over it too which we love. Now think savory when you’re cooking this.
Oatmeal no longer needs to be thought of as a breakfast cereal topped with sugar….it is a great base to add ingredients like sausage, eggs, and spices. Let me show you what I mean.
The first thing you want to do is boil some milk and add your oatmeal to that so it becomes the desired consistency.
We like ours a big more turgid than others, especially if we are making it a savory dish but if you like a soupier consistency then just add a bit more milk.
While this is boiling you will want to start browning the sausage, onion, and garlic in a bit of olive oil…..I know, it sounds good already right??!!
Here’s the entire recipe.
Night cereal sausage and egg savory oatmeal
- Brown sausage in a pan with minced garlic, olive oil, and diced onion if desired. Set aside. Add milk to pan and wait until it boils, then add your oats and cook on medium heat for 5-6 min. or until it reaches your desired consistency. To thin oatmeal add a bit more milk. Fold in sausage mixture and add to a bowl. Cook an egg medium / hard over and place on top. Pour milk on top of egg and fill bowl as much as you desire. Serve! This recipe serves about 2 people.
I like to involve my kids when I’m cooking or baking because it makes them want to taste “their recipe.” I’ve done this for so long that my children have a wide range of things they like including sushi, kale chips, and this night cereal sausage and egg savory oatmeal too!
Allowing them to add ingredients to the mix is fun for them, and makes them curious as to what it will taste like in the end……mom success. 😉
I encourage you to try this dish for dinner too! Everyone loves breakfast for dinner and this is a new way of thinking about cereal that you may not have thought about before, but I assure you it is really good! Another thing you’ve got to try, have dinner outside in the backyard.
I don’t know what it is about sitting together on the patio but it’s a nice change every once and a while and let’s face it, a little bit of sunshine just puts everyone in a good mood. 😉 Let us know what your family thinks of this night cereal sausage and egg savory oatmeal when you make it.
