Savory Oatmeal

In honor of the first day of Winter, I wanted to make a yummy warm breakfast. Usually we make our oatmeal sweet, but I am a fan of savory oatmeal, so I'll share my super easy recipe with you here.

1/4 white onion chopped
1/2 T butter
Oatmeal (whatever kind you normally use for the stovetop - I use quick oats from Quaker)
Water or Milk (depending on what you like with your oatmeal - follow package directions)
1 Egg cracked into a small bowl
1/2 T Lemon Juice
Dash of dried Italian Herbs
Dash of fresh ground Pepper
Smidge of Grated cheese

Cook onions in pot with butter
After onions are soft, add water to pot, bring to a boil
Add oats to pot, lower heat, cook until desired texture
Add a dash of Italian herbs and pepper to taste
In a separate pot, Poach an egg - (I don't have an egg poacher so this is how I do it: fill small non stick pot with less than an inch of water, add about 1/2 T of lemon juice, bring water to a boil, crack egg in a small bowl, add egg to boiling water, return water to a boil then cover and promptly remove pot from heat, poach single egg for about 3 minutes, remove with slotted spoon)
Put the oatmeal in a bowl, poached egg on top, sprinkled with grated cheese
