Savoury Baked Oats
I love baked oats and have made many a different variation of a baked oats recipe. Having tried a dozen or so sweet versions, I began to wonder about savoury baked oats. A bit of Googling later and I realised that it wasn’t really a big thing. However, I was convinced they would taste good and determined to try them.
For brunch today, I had an absolutely delicious savoury baked oats dish and I give that version in the recipe card. I have had a little ponder and come up with lots of other flavour possibilities too.
If you aren’t a fan of sweet things, these might be right up your street. Also a great option to bake in muffin cases and using as part of a packed lunch, or just plain for something different. If you’re anything like me, you’ll like lots of different options in your menu. Menu-wise, I’m easily bored
