Orange You Glad I Made Squash Oats?

1/2 cup oats

1 1/4 cup water

1/4 of a butternut squash, roasted and scooped out

1 egg

1 wedge laughing cow

Combine oats, water, and squash. Cook on medium til all is absorbed. Top with egg, fried to runny-yolked perfection, and cheese, broken into melty chunks.

Sweet squash+ hearty oats+ oozing yolk+ melty salty cheese= OH. EM. GEE.

Also had a Dunkies latte on the way home from church :D

Aren't savoury oats bangin'?! Love em! And they're so versatile, you can do so many different combos and the dish is still practically fail proof!

Oh gawsh. That mini food looks so good. Wish I could transport it here. Because I don't feel like cooking dinner.
