Who doesn’t love a Rooster? Actually, probably a lot of people. They’re kind of noisy and mean, but they serve a good purpose. They protect their brood and sound the alarm if anything is amiss. They’re tough and mean business, so we’ve named this oatmeal creation after them. This is a mean, but delicious, breakfast perfect for keeping you sharp all morning. We know it sounds unconventional to turn oatmeal into such a savory Tex-Mex affair, but, trust us, it’s delicious.
The Rooster: To your favorite kind of oatmeal, add shredded cheddar (we really like it mixed in, but you can add it on top, as well), chorizo, black beans and a fried egg. Top with a drizzle of barbecue sauce, salsa and sour cream.
