Savory Oatmeal Griddlecakes (SO GOOD!)

Just had a very nice brunch and found a new recipe...was quite is what i made...adapted from Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything Vegetarian".

Here's what you need:
  • 2 cups cooked oatmeal...steelcut organic irish oats, please
  • butter
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c half/half
  • 1/4 cup flour (i used whole wheat)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • spices: turmeric, fennel, cumin, etc.
1. Cook onions in 2 Tbsp. butter with salt and pepper until they are well caramelized. Add the peas (maybe carrots would be good too) toward the end of cooking.
2. Heat a heavy skillet on medium-high.
3. Whisk the eggs and milk together. Then add salt, flour, baking powder, and oatmeal. You can also add in curry powder or turmeric, fennel, cumin, and something spicy if you'd like.
4. Cook the griddlecakes like they're small pancakes...about a Tbsp. or two of batter per cake.
5. They're really good with some yogurt sauce...maybe add some raw onion, hot sauce, and cumin to some plain yogurt. mmmmmm
