I just felt like there was something lacking...maybe the fact that these are savory oats and not sweet! ha! Marc loved liked them so maybe it's just me. I just thought the runny egg mixed with the runny oatmeal made me kinda naseus first thing in the morning. With that awesomely GROSS picture in your mind. Try this oatmeal (I added turkey bacon and sliced cheese since I didn't have parmesan) for yourself and see if it's just my crazy tastebuds!
