Savory Steel Cut Oats, Vegetables and Fried eggs

When Spring asparagus arrives, I always make this breakfast.  My family loves it.

Follow the directions on your steel cut oats but use stock instead of water. I used chicken stock but you could also use beef or vegetable..

These take about 30 minutes to cook so prepare your vegetables while these simmer.

I like to use this combination but use whichever vegetables you like. Mushrooms, asparagus, zucchini and onions.

Melt a few tablespoons of butter with the same amount of olive oil in a skillet.

Saute' the vegetables over medium high heat until their edges start to brown.

I slice the asparagus in half if they are thick.  Season with salt and pepper.

Put a scoop of the oats in a bowl and cover with some veggies.

Fry an egg and serve on top or in this case slipping down the side of the veggie/oat mountain.

I've never eaten steel cut oats, not sure I've ever seen it either. There's another grain we have steel cut but I can't find the english name on it :-) :-) :-)

Interesting combination though, so now I must go and find that oat here too :-)

Have a great day!

By the way, I had a dog once that loved asparagus, she loved kit so much that I had to hide it ftom her, otherwise she stole it as soon as she could :-) To bad for her that I loved it just as much :-)

This is sooo good. If you are out of steel cut oats, as I was one day last week, use stone ground grits. Wonderful too!

Veggies for breakfast? Seems like communism to me.
