Not all oatmeal breakfasts feature sweet ingredients as this maple cheddar apple morning porridge proves. This delicious wholesome breakfast combines steel-cut oats, roasted apples, spices and cheddar cheese to offer an unconventional flavor twist.

Cheese and apple pair well together as both the sweet and savory elements help to contrast the other. This oatmeal recipe plays off of this combination by creating a cheesy steel-cut oatmeal base infused with sharp cheddar, brown sugar, cream and vanilla and topping it with slow roasted apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and maple syrup. The apple and cheese complement one another creating a deliciously wholesome breakfast meal that is cheesy, gooey, filling, sweet and savory all in one. You can play around with different types of apples and cheeses to customize a pairing to suit your palette.
