  • Bacon & oats.

    Been improvising with oats - should work ok:

    4 ounces of porridge oats
    4 rashers of bacon, diced
    1 large, spicy onion, sliced
    salted butter - not too much, there's the baco fat. More or less 1 largeish chunk.
    3 chilli peppers, sliced or whole if ya wanna take em out
    black pepper coarsely ground
    red thai curry paste
    small can of coconut milk
    2 eggs
    water

    toast the oats in a frying pan with butter for c. 2 minutes with the pepper.
    stir fry the onion, bacon and chilli paste (mix the paste with 4 tablespoons of water first so it permeates well) into the oats. When the oats have absorbed the liquid, stir fry the eggs and diced chillies in until the texture is firm and the fry is dry.

    Test the oats for consistency - should be a bit hard in the centre.

    Add a few sloshes of coconut milk, depends on how you're winging it, and simmer down until the mix is firm and the oats chewy but no longer hard.

    Hey presto! Scothai breakfast!

        Try it n see! The idea is to get the oats' texture a bit like that of fried rice. So need to get the large ones, not the ground up ones.

        Inspired by the ancient habit of porridge with a bit of salt instead o' sugar.

        You can replace the bacon with chicken if you want.

          If you want to try savoury, make some oatcakes (braw wi a wee bit cheese), or skirlie.

            Oh, the bacon is no bother, but if I ever try that, there will be a distinct lack of chilli peppers and curry. But that's just me.

                    Or coat the bacon with panko crumbs mixed with pinhead oats and deep fry. Add the gravy you made, maybe a wee drop of fish sauce in the gravy (Thai nam pla, Philippine patis) ?

                      You are quite right there Pol

                      I asked Jim if he wanted to try it, he is not a vegetarian and his reply was - - not in a million years !!

                        Sounds tasty! Never tasted Philippine patis but should be loads of nam pla available in this neck of the woods.

                            Jim says these are what he doesn't like

                            4 ounces of porridge oats
                            black pepper coarsely ground
                            red Thai curry paste
                            small can of coconut milk

                            He is not keen on curries, give him a plate of mince and tatties and he's very happy

                              Ok, I shall review the goat recipe, removing coconut/curry paste. But the oats've gotta stay in, albeit with an alternate tatter & ningun sub rec.

                              Is beer ok in the gravy?
