Rainy Day Oatmeal With Egg

This is the sort of breakfast that my Mom would have taught me, when I was young. Maybe she did, I don't remember...

>> See it done!

  • 1 C Oatmeal, Quick Cooking.
  • 2 Eggs.
  • Butter / margerine, a teaspoon or so.
  • A dash Curry Powder.
  • 2 dashes of Ginger.
  • A dash of Onion Powder.
  • Boiling Water.

  1. Add oatmeal to a microwave safe individual serving bowl.
  2. Add spices to oatmeal, and mix.
  3. Pour boiling water over oatmeal and mix. Add water until slightly soupy.
  4. Let oatmeal cook and cool. Oatmeal will be a clay like paste. This is what kidz love (yes, I had fun too).
  5. Add butter, mix well.
  6. Take a teaspoon (or use fingers), and mold the oatmeal into a bowl, pressing against inside edge of the outer bowl. Mold the bottom of the oatmeal bowl, decoratively.
  7. Break open eggs - carefully - into a coffee cup. Don't break the yolks.
  8. Pour eggs into the oatmeal bowl. Don't break the yolks.
  9. Pour boiling water over the egg whites, carefully. Don't break the yolks. When done, the water should cover tops of the yolks. It's like poaching the agg.
  10. Take a toothpick, and carefully poke 2 or 3 holes in each yolk. Don't break the yolks.
  11. Cover the bowl with a larger and flat shallow plastic bowl, place in a microwave, cook 1 minute on high at 100%.
  12. Remove from the microwave and check. Egg white should be solid white, yolk should be creamy like a sunny side up egg.
  13. As necessary, repeat in 30 second bursts, until egg is properly cooked.
  14. Break yolks, and mix with oatmeal in chunks.
  15. Garnish / add condiments. I like grated cheese, salsa, minced onion, more salsa. Cover with bean salad or maybe cucumber / yogurt dressing, as available.
  16. Eat when cool enough.
