I wasn't a huge fan of this but it was ok. I had to add milk for there to be enough liquid in the end.

Keeps well, if you want to make this the night before and heat it up in the morning.

I suggest mixing the egg with the oatmeal before adding it to the water. That helped prevent the egg from cooking too quickly on me. (:
