I do the same thing, make a full pot of oatmeal, have my first serving and the rest gets divided.

Have it with fruit of some sort, usually blueberries and/or banana, brown sugar, sometimes molasses and.... butter! (no milk)

Not everyday,

try to vary it with Shreddies plus a handful of Grape Nuts (when I can get them, not available in my neck of the woods) topped with aforementioned fruit and just milk (no sugars)
or
then eggs, generally poached, on toast - with almost anything in the fridge.
Yesterday was an an omelette with sauteed mushrooms, a few leftover long green beans and onion gravy down the centre and folded over, crepe style. Delish

this morning - probably some oatmeal.

Pork Loin, Fried Potato, and Egg

Big breakfasts the last couple days but the daily calorie totals have been unsustainably low. Nonetheless, I'm so close to breaking 200lbs. I can taste it.

Yesterday it was a delicate French omeler, enhanced with a shaving of seriously sharp cheddar, and thin-sliced celery, salt, and pepper. Today was a thick slice of yeasty home-made white bread, toasted, and slathered with a cream cheese/raspberry jelly spread I'd just made.

I love French omelets. They are about celebrating the delicate flavor of the egg, where the American omelet is a celbration of the omelet fillings. As the egg is just barely cooked through with a French omelet, the flavor is more subtle, and to me, satisfying. With the cream chese/rasperry spread, the tartness of both the raspberry jam, and the cream cheese, is buffered by hte sweetness of the jam, and when put on very good toasted bread, well, it is a pleasure on the palate.

My favorite breakfast is 2 eggs over easy corn beef hash and wheat toast which is usually on Sunday. Every other day is usually, toast or a muffin but lately been making these bars. Mix them up - I press them into a 11 x 7 baking pan lined with parchment paper. Press the really firm. Refridge for at least a few hours, then remove from pan and cut into desired size bars. Store in a container in fridge. I grab one or 2 and my coffee and Im good till lunch.
2 cups of Oats
1 cup rice krispies
1/2 cup ground flax seed
3 tbl Chia seeds
1 cup dried cranberries ( or dried fruit of your choice)
1 cup peanut butter ( I use smooth style )
1/4 cup honey
I mix it all together with my hands and rubber gloves
I have also added mini chocolate chips when making for grandkids
if using like dried apricots chop them up small.
good for a snack bar also

Letscook, that sounds like something that my grands would really like.

This morning's breakfast was a skillet stir fry again....chopped potatoes, bell pepper, shallot, and eggs. A little bit of soy sauce mixed in. Sliced mango for a side.
