Ingredients

2 tsp / 10 mL
butter or vegetable oil
3/4 cup / 175 mL
Prestige Ultra™ Liquid Whole Egg
1 portion / 1
Savoury Steel Cut Oats (see below)
1 tbsp / 15 mL
vegetable oil
1/4 cup / 60 mL
Crumbled Cooked Sausages (see below)
1/3 cup / 75 mL
Sautéed Peppers and Onions (see below)
1/4 cup / 60 mL
toasted corn (optional)
1/2 cup / 125 mL
baby arugula leaves
Garnishes
Shredded Parmesan cheese, chopped green onion and balsamic drizzle (optional)

Directions

  1. Heat butter in a small skillet set over medium-low heat; add eggs and softly scramble until just about set (about 2 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, reheat oats in the microwave on High for 30 seconds; crumble into the scrambled eggs and stir gently to combine.
  3. On the flat top or a medium skillet brushed with vegetable oil, reheat crumbled sausage and pepper-onion mixture separately. (Toast corn in a separate area as well, if using.)
  4. Portion egg and oatmeal scramble into a serving bowl. Top with warm sausage crumbles and pepper mixture. Add baby arugula and corn (if using). Garnish with cheese and parsley; drizzle with balsamic glaze (if using).

Tips

  • Customize and add colour to bowls with additional vegetable toppings such as blanched broccoli spears, sautéed mushrooms, diced tomatoes etc.
  • Balsamic drizzle (a prepared, thickened balsamic vinegar glaze) adds a unique touch of sweetness that contrasts nicely with peppery arugula and mild sausage in this bowl.

Ingredients

2 tbsp / 30 mL
olive or vegetable oil
2 cups / 500 mL
steel cut oats
6 cups / 1.5 L
warm sodium-reduced chicken broth
2 cups / 500 mL
warm 2 % milk
1/2 tsp / 2 mL
fresh ground pepper

Additional Toppings:

1 1/2 lb / 750 g
turkey or pork breakfast sausages, casings removed
2 / 2
large red peppers, thinly sliced
1 / 1
large sweet onion, quartered and sliced
1 tbsp / 15 mL
olive or vegetable oil

Directions

  1. Savoury Steel Cut Oats: Heat the oil in a large, heavy stockpot set over medium heat. Add oats, and toast for 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant. Stir in warm chicken broth and milk. Bring to a simmer; cook, stirring occasionally for 45 to 50 minutes or until liquids are absorbed and oatmeal is creamy. Portion oatmeal into a greased, 12-cup muffin pan. Chill until set. Remove oatmeal 'cups' and transfer to an airtight container and reserve in refrigerator for up to 3 days. Makes 12 portions.
  2. Additional Toppings: Remove sausage from casings and crumble into a large skillet set over medium heat. Sauté until browned and cooked through. Cool and reserve in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Makes 3 cups (750 mL).
  3. Sauté peppers and onion in oil in a large skillet until browned and tender. Reserve in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Makes about 4 cups (1 L).

Tips

  • As the oatmeal thickens near the end of the cooking time, it will need more frequent stirring to prevent sticking.
