Here’s a whole-grain treat, easily made in big batches and used in many ways.
2 cups quick-style oats
1/3-cup olive oil or 1 stick butter, melted
1/3-cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
1/3-cup wheat germ
1/4-teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon Italian herbs (basil-oregano mix)
Mix all ingredients well in a shallow, microwavable dish and cook on high, stirring each minute for five minutes or until the mixture is golden brown. Cool, seal in a plastic bag, and keep in the refrigerator. Sprinkle this versatile topping on steamed vegetables or crisp salads. Toss the topping with hot pasta and diced, fresh Roma tomatoes and pass grated cheese. Sprinkle it on crescent roll dough, then roll and bake. Or flatten refrigerator biscuits, top each with a teaspoon of topping, and then fold, seal, and bake.
