If you only think of oatmeal as a sweet breakfast option, you’re missing out on tons of rich and filling savory options. Inspired by The Kitchn’s Cheesy, Savory Oatmeal Breakfast Bowl, this bacon and egg version is super easy to make at home, but can also be put together in minutes at any Hampton by Hilton location.

We often use Hampton locations as our home-away-from-home while traveling across our state for our kids’ soccer tournaments. Since there’s always a Hampton nearby (you’re never more than about 30 minutes from one!), we know that we can get a great night’s sleep and start tournament days with an easy and filling breakfast without making another stop before the soccer fields.

If you only think of oatmeal as a sweet breakfast option, you're missing out on tons of rich and filling savory options.

As much as we love the waffles from Hampton’s free breakfast selection (they’re seriously epic in taste and fluffiness), sometimes we need to switch it up and make sure the kids are powered for back-to-back games. That’s how this savory oatmeal bowl was born. Using Hampton’s always-available oatmeal and dressing it with plenty of butter and salt and pepper is just the start. From the free, hot breakfast offering, you can add bacon (torn or crumbled into bite-sized pieces) and top with freshly scrambled eggs. Our family also loves to swap the scrambled eggs with Hampton’s cheese or Western omelet when it’s available — because some extra savoriness never hurt.

Hampton by Hilton makes sure you have everything you need for a great start to the day, so we can build these breakfast bowls in the hotel and grab utensils and napkins to take them on the run.
