Savory Breakfast Sausage Oatmeal

5 from 4 reviews

Savory oatmeal with breakfast sausage is a great start to the day, filled with fiber and protein and so delicious. It’s gluten-free, optionally dairy-free and a great make-ahead breakfast idea.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 cups water or stock (veggie or chicken)
  • 2 cups (old fashioned) rolled oats
  • 1/2 red onion, diced very fine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 lb. ground breakfast sausage
  • 3 green onions, sliced and divided
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • cooked sunny side up or poached eggs (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a pot over medium heat bring water/stock to a boil.
  2. Add oats, red onion, salt and garlic powder, stir to combine and and lower the heat. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring often, until the oatmeal is creamy and tender. Stir in maple syrup, if using.
  3. Meanwhile heat a skillet over medium-high heat. When hot add oil and ground breakfast sausage. Cook until the sausage is brown. Remove sausage to a plate lined with paper towel (or a clean kitchen towel) and let excess fat drain.
  4. Divide oatmeal into 4 bowls and top with sausage, green onions, cheese and eggs, if desired. If cooking for meal prep do not add cheese until after it has be re-heated.

Notes

Can omit cheese and add in 1 tablespoons of nutritional yeast into the oatmeal if looking for a “cheesy” taste.
