We tend to think of rolled oats as a sweet morning breakfast with brown sugar, cinnamon or syrup. I 've been reading about savoury oats... then I tested them...

I haven't tried this but think it might be tasty,  Oats did bring my cholesterol level down when I was having them.

Just so long as you are finished sowing your wild oats.

Samuel  Johnson's dictionary offered  a very unusual definition for the word oats: 'a grain, which in England is generally given to horses, but in Scotland supports the people.'

Aye.  It appears oats were a major source of carbs for Scots for hundreds of years... also good for fibre and lowering cholesterol.  I have some lovely "overnight oat"/"Bircher muesli" recipes for summer. Now the winter savoury version works for me as well.  You can't complain about the cost either.  I know the ancient Persians also made oat dishes with lamb meat.  I found an Indian oat paratha recipe tonight as well.  I think I need to do a tad more research on this little number.

Not so weird when you've made and eaten as many Haggises as I have ;-)

Comment by Dave Riley on June 24, 2019 at 18:35

There's many a Scot who'll address the haggis in similar terms. Why you just replace the bacon with offal meats and sew it all up in a sheep's stomach.

You could then have yourself a Burns' supper.

Some hae meat, and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat -
And sae the Lord be thankit.
O Thou who kindly dost provide For every creature's want!
We bless Thee, God of Nature wide,
For all thy goodness lent. 
And, if it please Thee, heavenly Guide,
May never worse be sent; 
But, whether granted or denied, 
Lord bless us with content.

I know it seems weird - but it is REALLY good.
