Rethink your oatmeal– it’s time to come to the savory side! Try this savory oatmeal with Vermont sharp cheddar, cottage cheese, fried eggs, bacon, avocado, and sriracha! 



  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup steel-cut oatmeal
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup Cabot cottage cheese
  • 8oz Cabot Vermont Sharp Cheddar, shredded
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 egg per person
  • Avocado slices
  • Bacon crumbles
  • Sriracha


  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add oats, stir to toast for 2-3 minutes until fragrant. Add milk and water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until oats are tender.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the cottage cheese and cheddar until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Heat a small skillet over medium heat and spray with olive oil. Crack in eggs and cover, cooking until the whites are cooked through but yolks are runny.
  4. Divide oats into 4 to 6 bowls. Top with avocado slices, fried eggs, bacon, a sprinkle of cheddar, and a generous squeeze of sriracha!
