Oatmeal with Craisins and....
Since we've gone gluten-free and discovered Daniel's egg allergy, breakfasts have gotten more complicated, or more interesting, however you'd like to look at it. One thing we've been eating a lot more of is oatmeal. But what do you do when you run out of your "standard" toppings? You have to get a little more inventive.
I've been watching some episodes of Cupcake Wars lately, and one thing that they do a lot is mix two flavors that you might not otherwise put in a cupcake. So, I decided to try the same thing with my oatmeal yesterday.
Usually I put brown sugar in my oatmeal, but we ran out on Saturday when I made a GFCF apple crisp.
We did have Craisins on hand, and they taste great in oatmeal. But, I wanted something salty to help soothe my sore throat, balance the sweetness of the Craisins, and give me a little protein with my carbs.
That's right. I put Craisins and bacon in my oatmeal yesterday and it was.... GREAT! I'll definitely be doing that again. :)
