4 cups plus toppers


  • 1 ½ cup steel-cut oats

  • 4 ½ cup water

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 tsp. butter

  • 4 eggs

  • Salt and black pepper (optional)

  • ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (2 oz.)

  • 4 slices crisp cooked bacon, crumbled

  • 1 medium avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and sliced

  • 2 tablespoon thinly sliced green onions

  • Bottled hot pepper sauce (optional)

  • 1 recipe Over-Easy Fried Eggs


  1. In a 4- to 6-qt. electric or stove-top pressure cooker combine oats, water, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Lock lid in place. Set electric cooker on high pressure to cook 10 minutes. For stove-top cooker, bring up pressure over medium-high heat; reduce heat enough to maintain steady (but not excessive) pressure. Cook 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

  2. For both models, let stand 15 minutes to release pressure naturally. Open lid carefully. Stir in 1 Tbsp. butter. Spoon oatmeal into bowls. Top with fried eggs, cheese, bacon, avocado, and green onions. If desired, serve with hot sauce.

Over-easy fried eggs

In a large nonstick skillet melt 2 tsp. butter over medium heat. Break eggs into skillet. If desired sprinkle with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low; cook eggs 3 to 4 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks start to thicken. Turn eggs and cook 30 to 60 seconds more for over-easy fried eggs.
