A beaten egg whisked into the simmering oatmeal just before serving will turn it into a wonderful custard consistency. Not eggy at all.

Lately, I've been making my oats as "summer porridge"...basically adding the raw oats to yogurt and milk and fruit and put in the fridge overnight to absorb the liquid. It's eaten cold...no cooking required. Delicious. I add chia seeds to it to boost it's protein level.

I use groats, not oats. Groats are what rolled or cut oats are before they are rolled or cut. They're basically right off the plant with no processing. More fiber.
