I don’t usually get all excited about breakfast. But here I am, bringing you two breakfast recipes in a row.
Maybe I’m finally getting in tune with all the “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” chatter that I’ve been hearing my whole life. Or maybe I’m just now finding some breakfast foods that really excite me and actually MAKE me want to get up and eat breakfast.
Either way, I’m in a breakfast groove lately. And this Savory Oatmeal with Bacon, Roasted Squash and Avocado is my latest obsession.
Savory oatmeal is kind of a new thing for me. I definitely have more of a sweet tooth than a savory tooth when it comes to breakfast (and all meals, for that matter!). But I’m really having fun exploring some savory oatmeal options. This one has all my favorite things: bacon, sliced avocado and roasted butternut squash sweetened with just a hint of maple syrup. You could put roasted squash and maple syrup on just about anything and I’d gobble it right up! It’s my love language.
I used Almond Breeze’s new Almondmilk Cashewmilk Blend to cook the oats. It gives this oatmeal an irresistible creaminess (without all the actual cream!) that makes it hard to resist. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for it in the stores!
So tell me, have you tried savory oatmeal before? If so, what are your favorite toppings?
