When oats is cooked we don't put sugar so each one can eat oats the way they like it. I like it savory.
saute half a diced onion and add minced garlic. if you have baked garlic on hand,the better. Towards the end of carmalization add half a teaspoon of dijon mustard. Chop a teaspoon of herbs - whatever you have. sage, thyme and rosemary is what was added to a cup of oats.
Lots of fresh black pepper always adds flavor - you know it.
I also added a tablespoon of yogurt to the melange of oats and the smiling caramelized Onion & garlic.
... and before I knew it I had cleaned my cup.
Thank You Oats, you helped me postpone my weekly grocery trip to tomorrow.
