  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp shallots minced
  • 2 cups steel cut oats
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats not quick cooking
  • 5 cups water or more depending on your preference
  • Optional: 1/4 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup brussels sprouts sliced
  • 1 small-medium sweet potato diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 eggs depending on your preference
  • 1-2 tbsp Cholula Hot Sauce or more to taste


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat then add the shallots and stir for 1-2 minutes. Next, add the oats and water, stir, and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and simmer oats for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally until oats are cooked.
  • While oats are cooking, heat oil in a separate skillet, then add the brussels sprouts and sweet potato, sprinkle them with salt and pepper and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until they're cooked. Note: you may need to add more oil so that they cook faster.
  • Once the sprouts and potatoes are cooked, turn the heat down to low and use a spatula to create a hole in the center of the skillet; then, crack an egg in the center. If you're cooking two eggs, create two holes. Fry the egg(s) until it's cooked all the way through.
  • Once the oats are cooked, stir in the cheese until it's melted.
  • To assemble: pour oats into a bowl then top them with the brussels sprouts, potatoes, egg, and last but certainly not least, the Cholula!
  • Enjoy!
