Recipe for savory oatmeal with an egg

Serves 4

Southborough cooking teacher Lori Leinbach tops hot oatmeal with an egg, and if she has a little leftover cooked spinach or chard, she adds those to the dish. She recommends putting steel-cut or old-fashioned oats in a bowl of cold water to soak before you leave for work, so when you get home, oatmeal for dinner is ready in 6 to 8 minutes. “This is one of our ways to work more whole grainsinto our lives,” she says.
