  • 1/4 cup steel cut oats, cooked (or 1 serving instant steel cut oatmeal)
  • 1 6-minute egg
  • 1/4 cup guacamole
  • 1/4 cup black beans, warmed
  • 1/4 cup salsa (or pico de gallo)
  • 2 Tbsp tomatoes, diced
  • 2 Tbsp shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 Tbsp scallions, sliced
  • 2 tsp cilantro, minced
  • hot sauce to taste
  • salt and pepper
  1. Prepare one serving of steel cut oatmeal according to package directions and season with salt. (A quarter cup of oats yields about 1 cup of cooked oatmeal).

  2. Make your 6-minute egg while your oatmeal cooks. Bring a saucepan of water to a rolling boil. Lower the egg gently into the water with a slotted spoon. Boil the egg for EXACTLY 6 minutes and plunge into a bowl of ice water. Peel the egg.

  3. Scoop oatmeal into a bowl and top with guacamole, black beans, salsa, tomatoes, cheese, scallions, cilantro, hot sauce. Cut the 6-min egg in half and place on top and season the bowl with salt and pepper to serve.

Recipe Notes
  • like to use the quick-soak method for steel cut oats so they're ready for breakfast in the morning. Instant steel cut oatmeal is also a quick and easy alternative.
  • Remember that 1 serving of oatmeal is 1/4 cup oats which yields about 1 cup cooked oatmeal.
  • Make it your own! Swap out beans, cheese, or sliced avocado for the guac.
  • A 6 minute egg is my favorite because I love a super runny yolk, but a fried or hard-boiled egg can be substituted.
  • I think these Mexican breakfast bowls are the best when they're all stirred up and mixed together!
