Happy National Peanut Butter Day everyone! Oh boy, do I have a treat for you guys. This recipe was carefully crafted over the past 2 weeks until I found the perfect combination and ratio of ingredients. I call it Cheesy Bacon Oatmeal but it’s so much more than that. Not only do I add peanut butter, but spicy peanuts and a splash of buffalo wing sauce too. This recipe is like going to the diner for breakfast, taking your plate and your significant-others’ plate and mashing them together in a bowl. Delicious and quite healthy too, depending on the ingredients you use. I use a thick-sliced smoked turkey bacon and Alpine Lace American cheese.
1/3 cup oats
1/2 cup milk
2 slices chopped bacon or turkey bacon, uncooked
2 Tbsp shredded Cheddar cheese or 1 slice American cheese
2 Tbsp spicy peanuts
1 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
1 tsp buffalo hot wing sauce
pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
Combine the oats, milk, bacon and peanuts in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 3-5 minutes, or until the oatmeal almost boils over. Stir in the peanut butter and the remaining ingredients. Enjoy the heck out of it!
