Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal with an Egg Boost

Mary Dunkersloot, Courtesy of the Egg Nutrition Center

For oatmeal fans who want more protein in their breakfast, adding yogurt and egg does the trick, making this somewhat like bread pudding. Although 2/3 cup of oats contains 3 grams of protein, you'll get an additional 6 grams of protein by adding the egg, and even more if you top it with yogurt.

Ingredients: 
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped apple
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Dash salt (optional)
  • 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
Instructions: 
  1. Beat the egg and milk in a 2-cup microwave-safe bowl until blended. Stir in the oats, apple, sugar, cinnamon and salt.
  2. Microwave on high until the liquid is absorbed and the egg is set, 1 ½ to 2 minutes.
  3. Stir and top with yogurt. Garnish with additional chopped apples if you wish.
