  4. Cook for 2 minute at a simmer then remove from heat and allow to continue to cook in pot for 2-3 minutes off heat.

  5. Remove oats from pot and add to bowl, stir in cheese, spices & bacon, set aside.

Poached Eggs

  1. Rinse out pot (don’t need to get super clean) and add in enough water to cover 2 eggs.

  2. Return pot to heat, add in apple cider vinegar and bring to a boil. Meanwhile place eggs in small bowls or ramekins (this will make it easier to drop in hot water).

  3. Once boiling, stir the water clockwise and carefully drop in both eggs.
  4. Cook for 3-1/2 minutes at a simmer (may need to reduce heat as you don’t want water overflowing).

  5. Remove from heat with a slotted spoon and place on paper towel lined plate
  6. Top oats with eggs, guac, & sliced tomato. Enjoy!
