    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.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 2 

    • 1 cup rolled oats
    • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
    • 1 onion, diced
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • 1 cup bread crumbs
    • oil, for frying

    Directions
    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Extra time:1hour cooling  ›  Ready in:1hour55min 

    1. Cook rolled oats in the boiling water with onion. When very well cooked and thick, season well then press into a greased basin or mould.
    2. When cold, turn out onto a cutting board then slice into 1cm slices. Dip in the egg then the bread crumbs.
    3. Heat frying pan over medium high heat with oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides then drain on paper towel lined plate.

    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
