Oats egg porridge – How to make creamy oatmeal with eggs. This was one of the recipes that was requested by many readers especially for babies and kids. This recipe was shared by another reader who makes it regularly for her breakfast.
I usually make this vegetable oats porridge & this breakfast oatmeal with dried fruits. Stirring in an egg to a oatmeal porridge seemed to be very unusual. But this recipe has been liked by many since it is healthy.
The nutrition levels in this egg oats is quite high and is very healthy due to the addition of egg. If made right, the egg doesn’t smell in this dish and turns out to be creamy all without the addition of milk or cream.
This can be had for breakfast or a light dinner. It is best served immediately after cooking or at least while it is warm. I have used little carrot which can be skipped if you do not prefer.
Oats egg porridge is great for those who are on the lookout for ideas to include more protein to your oatmeal.
