Heart Warming Savory Oats

Often times when we think of oats, we think of sweets food to compliment to go with the dish. Berries, brown sugar, nuts and dried fruits.
At first, the idea of savory oats didn't sit too well with me but, WOW! This has become a recipe that I come back to over and over again.
I often make a double or triple batch because not only is it great for breakfast, but I eat it for lunch and dinner too.
