I prefer savoury things for breakfast, so I wanted to try something new with oats that can keep me full for several hours during the busy days. I also love eating leftover pizza in the mornings occasionally (because why not?) which gave me the idea of creating something which is full of nutrients, provides longer satiety and also tastes like pizza.
I should say that this recipe is very flexible. It can be eaten for breakfast, for lunch or dinner, as well as being a great snack when you cannot wait for your main meal. The ingredients can also be substituted with your favourites. For example, you may choose to substitute red onions with scallions. So, you can get creative – this recipe is entirely up to your taste!
You may also choose to veganize this recipe if you are a vegan. Eggs can be substituted with chia eggs. One chia egg can be prepared with mixing 1 tbsp chia seeds + 3 tbsp drinking water. Wait for a few minutes and the mixture will take a gel texture to substitute an egg. Likewise, yoghourt and cheese can be substituted with vegan alternatives.
Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days. Best reheated in the oven.
This recipe serves 2-3 servings. Preparation time is around 15 minutes, and the cook time is 25 minutes.
