Savory Oatmeal with Poached Eggs and Goat Cheese

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time30 mins



  • 1 cup quick-cooking steel cut oats
  • 3 cups water
  • salt
  • 2 tablespoons goat cheese, more for topping
  • 1/4 cup Blue Diamond roasted almonds, roughly chopped
  • freshly ground black pepper

Optional Toppings

  • chives, chopped
  • red pepper, chopped
  • yellow cherry tomatoes, chopped

Poached Eggs

  • water
  • 4 large cold, fresh eggs


  • Add oatmeal, 3 cups water, and a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan. When water boils, bring it to simmer and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until most of the water has been absorbed by the oats. Turn off heat and stir in 2 tablespoons of goat cheese. Divide oatmeal into 4 bowls.
  • Fill a pot halfway with water and bring it to boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. You should still see some bubbles rising to the surface.
  • Crack an egg into a small bowl or ramekin. Drop egg into simmering water. Repeat with one more egg. Cook eggs for 3 minutes and remove with a slotted spoon. Place an egg on top of each bowl of oatmeal. Cook remaining 2 eggs.
  • Sprinkle each bowl with chopped almonds, black pepper, chives, red pepper, and tomatoes. Serve immediately.

If your eggs aren't that fresh, you'll want to cook them one at a time. Using a ladle or spoon, swirl water inside the pot, until you create small whirlpool. Drop egg right in the middle. The swirling water helps wrap the egg white around the yolk.
