In Costa Rica we always had rice and beans, gallo pinto, which is where you take the cooked rice and beans and kind of fry them a bit (together). The oil to fry them will help keep you full, too....fat goes a long way in keeping us full, and you don't need to use a ton of oil. This is a REALLY cheap breakfast. If you want to be fancy (but not healthy!) you could fry some plantain slices while you are at it. Plantain slices are just heaven on a plate!
We love baked oatmeal. We have a vegan in the house so I just substitute soy milk for the milk and soy flour and water for the egg.
¼ c. oil
½ c. sugar
1 ½ c. quick cooking oatmeal
1 tsp. Baking powder
½ tsp. Salt
½ c. milk
Cream oil, sugar and egg together. Add all other ingredients and mix. Pour into a greased 8-inch square cake pan. (I double it and put in a 9 X 13 pan) Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 mins.
Serve with milk. Makes 4-5 servings.
Variations: Add ½ cup raisins, ¼ cup nuts and ½ teaspoon Cinnamon. Line bottom of pan with sliced apples.
That baked oatmeal recipe on the first page is amazingly delicious! I made it this morning and while it baked, the house smelled so yummy. Even little dd kept going "Mmm...mmmm...mmm...". I added 1/2 c. of raisins and about a teaspoon or so of cinnamon. I definitely want to try it with apples, though. Yum.
