I’m more of a savoury fan when it comes to breaky, but I am also a massive fan of comforting bowl food. So recently I started experimenting with overnight oats of a savoury kind. There’s lots of good recipes out there but nothing that really floated m’boat. So here’s what I came up with this weekend that I ended up having for brunch while sitting in bed and watching an ep of Suits:
Burnt Butter Savoury Breakfast Oats
Ingredients (makes 1 serving)
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup low fat milk plus another 1/4 cup
- 1/2 cup corn kernels (either frozen or drained from a can is fine)
- Big nob of butter
- 1/4 cup pepitas
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
- 1/2 cup cheese grated
- 1 spring onion chopped
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
Place oats and milk in a microwave proof dish and microwave for 90 seconds. Set aside for a moment.
Place pepitas in a bowl, add oil and paprika. Add a pinch of salt. Stir to make sure they are evenly coated. Spread out on an oven dish and bang them in the oven for 5-10 minutes.
Put the corn in a saucepan with the butter on a medium heat. Add a pinch of salt. Heat stirring, so the butter melts. Let the corn cook until the butter goes brown and there is charring on the corn itself.
Add the other 1/4 cup of milk to the oats and put in the microwave for 40 seconds. Add all ingredients to a bowl, take it back to bed with a coffee and don’t even think about getting up for a while.
