Anyone make savory oats?
im looking for some ideas to cook oats other than sweet methods.

I like my oats with margarine, salt, and pecans.

Or in my case, I buy them in bulk and I often buy thick cut, so I add 2 parts water per one part oats and simmer until the oats have fully absorbed the water. To simmer, I just get my water to a good boil, then turn the heat down to low and cover the pot. After the water is absorbed by the oats, I add my salt, margarine, and pecans (all amounts to taste) and stir thoroughly.

You can add the pecans to the oats and boil them along with the oatmeal, which I sometimes do, but that will make the pecans soft and not crunchy.

Make ris-oat-o. Toast your steel cut oats in a little butter, add broth and simmer til done. Finish with some parmesan.

Make your oatmeal the normal way and then add a large spoonful of peanut butter. Then slice a banana into the oatmeal. Use milk to adjust consistency. It's the most delicious breakfast ever and it keeps you full for a very long time. I'm not sure if that's exactly "savory" (it is rather sweet) but not nearly so much as adding brown sugar or syrup as some do.

Crankin, that does sound yummy. (And "Now why did I not ever think of that?")
