This dish is certainly more appetizing than it may sound. Rolled oats and onion, boiled then crumbed and fried. This depression era recipe has been in my family since the 30's.

This was nice. I have been looking for a method of preparing oatmeal as a savory dish rather than sweet and haven't had much luck.. until now. I liked this.. will try adding bacon or sausage to this next time - 06 May 2013
