  • ¾ cup + 1 tsp water separated
  • ¼ steel cut oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated Romano
  • ¼ avocado sliced
  • Salt pepper, and red pepper flakes


  • Place ¾ cup water and pinch of salt in saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add in steel cut oats and allow to boil for about 1 minute then reduce to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the oats are soft but chewy.
  • When there’s about 5 minutes left for the oats, heat a small skillet over medium-low heat and grease with cooking spray or a drop of olive oil.
  • Once heated, crack egg onto skillet, season with ground black pepper, and add 1 tsp water. Cover pan with lid and allow egg to cook about 3 minutes, or until the whites are set but the yolk is still runny.
  • Once the oats are cooked, pour into bowl and top with grated cheese. Add cooked egg, avocado slices, and red pepper flakes. Grab a spoon and dig in!
