This recipe-for-one has everything you want in a weekday breakfast: hot, quick, easy, nutritious, fiber-rich, delicious, and keeps you satisfied well past your 10 o'clock staff meeting. It's just a fried egg atop a bed of oatmeal with avocado and salsa (or pico) on the side. Hard to believe it's not already a thing.


  • 1 serving quick-cooking or old-fashioned rolled oats

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 1 large egg

  • Kosher salt and black pepper

  • ¼ avocado, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons fresh salsa


  1. Prepare oats according to package directions.

  2. Heat oil in a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the egg and season with ⅛ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cover and cook until slightly runny sunny-side up, 2 to 4 minutes.

  3. Serve the egg on the oatmeal topped with the avocado and salsa.
