Experience the delightful flavors of a savory oatmeal dish that will revolutionize your breakfast routine. This hearty recipe showcases nutrient-rich steel-cut oats, vibrant shredded carrot, red bell pepper, creamy cottage cheese, zesty pepper jack cheese, creamy avocado slices, and a perfectly fried egg on top, all finished off with a drizzle of spicy sriracha sauce.
To prepare this satisfying dish, start by cooking the steel-cut oats according to the package instructions until they reach a tender and flavorful consistency. Meanwhile, grate fresh carrot and finely dice red bell pepper to add both crunch and a burst of color to the oatmeal.
Once the oats are cooked, gently fold in the shredded carrot and diced red bell pepper, allowing their natural sweetness and crispiness to enhance the flavor profile. This combination adds a vibrant touch and satisfying texture to the dish.
Next, incorporate a dollop of creamy cottage cheese, contributing a tangy and creamy element to the savory oatmeal. The cottage cheese not only enhances the overall texture but also provides a good source of protein and calcium, making it a nutritious addition.
Sprinkle shredded pepper jack cheese on top of the oatmeal to infuse the dish with a zesty kick. As it melts, it creates a deliciously gooey and cheesy layer that perfectly complements the other ingredients.
Top the dish with creamy avocado slices, adding a buttery and smooth texture, along with heart-healthy fats. Avocado not only contributes richness but also provides essential nutrients and vitamins.
To elevate the flavor profile further, fry an egg to your desired level of doneness and place it on top of the oatmeal. The creamy yolk adds velvety richness and additional protein, transforming the dish into a satisfying and complete meal.
Finish off the creation with a drizzle of sriracha sauce, infusing the dish with a tantalizing spicy and tangy note that will awaken your taste buds. Adjust the amount of sriracha based on your personal heat preference.
