Have you ever made a savory oatmeal before??!! Well if you haven’t, this is the recipe to try! If you love breakfast for dinner, give our savory oatmeal with egg night cereal a try next time. I bet you’ll be surprised at how much you like it too! Special thanks goes out to got milk for sponsoring this post. (affiliate links present, originally published 8/16)

Savory Oatmeal with Egg

Just like cereal, and sweet Ninja foodi 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.

Savory Oatmeal with Egg and Avocado

Of course you can make this meat free if you’d rather and add avo. on top instead. I swear I could eat one of these every single day if they were ripe year round. Use your imagination to swap out one thing for another. Feel free to use drained and rinsed black beans with your fried egg, salsa, etc.

  • 1 1/2 c milk or almond milk
  • 1 c Old fashioned oats is what we used for this, sometimes called overnight oats
    • Quaker has a gluten free rolled oats option available too that would work the same way
  • 1 c milk or dairy free milk alternative
  • 8 oz sausage that is mild or spicy, precooked
  • Minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp parmesan grated cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Eggs cooked and placed on top of your savory oats
  • Pinch of salt and black pepper to taste

Some diced onions and even bell peppers can be added with the meat for texture and more flavor. You’ll need a small saucepan to cook the oats and a pan for the meat.

The first thing you want to do is boil some milk and add your oatmeal to that so it becomes the desired consistency. You could make this as slow cooker oatmeal as the base and add your crumbled ground sausage cooked and egg at the end too.

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??!!

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. 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. 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.

Dairy Free Savory Oatmeal

You may not be able to handle lactose, no problem. Almond milk, plain, works just as well to make this. You could even use water instead for fewer calories but it won’t be as creamy and delicious in that case. Want a sweet and savory breakfast? Add 1 tbsp of brown sugar in with the oats.

  • Brown your ground sausage in a pan with the minced garlic, olive oil, and finely diced onion if desired. Set aside.
  • Add milk to your pan and wait until it boils, reduce heat, 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 cooked sausage mixture and add to a bowl. Cook an egg medium / hard and place on top. Pour extra milk on top if desired. Serve! This recipe serves about 2 people.

For other yummy breakfast recipes try our chocolate oatmeal and/or oatmeal raisin muffins too. You could literally eat oats for all 3 meals in a day, it is that versatile. For a large crowd, like if you are having family over for the holidays this is a fun one to offer. Always new for people to try and a conversation starter.

If you make a breakfast bar you can offer all sorts of things to add on top like crumbled bacon, sliced Italian sausage pieces, even hash browns are fun to scoop on the top with a bit of salsa or hot sauce.

Oatmeal with Egg in Microwave

If you used quick oats you can follow instructions on the back of the container to nuke those in a bowl until tender. This is how to cook an egg in microwave alongside it;

  1. Crack your egg on a microwave safe plate, or use a large coffee mug
  2. Heat at regular 100% power for 30 seconds
  3. Gently touch the top and see if you want it more done
  4. If you want it closer to over medium heat another 10 seconds at a time checking again each time until it is as done as you’d like

Printable recipe card is here for you below. Of course we want you to come back and “see” us but it can be handy to keep it in your recipe book for later. If you try and love another thing folded inside or served on top let us know so we can try it in our next batch!

Make this and a batch of peach baked oatmeal and get ready for something new that will make you want seconds y’all.

(P.S.: I think the word you're actually looking for is just good ol' "thick".)

I would respectfully submit that "turgid" is not the word you're looking for. Turgid means "swollen, bloated, or congested" - it's more descriptive of a corpse just fished out of a river than it is of any food that anyone would actually want to eat. :D
