 2 Cups of water
 1 cup of Non-Dairy Milk
 ¾ Tsp Salt
 1 ¼ Cups of Gluten-Free Rolled Oats
 8 slices of Bacon
 ½ Cup Mushrooms, sliced

  1. Bring water, milk, and salt to a boil in a saucepan, then stir in oats. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook uncovered for 20-25 minutes, until desired consistency. Stir a few times during while they cook, but not too much or the oats will get gummy.
  2. Meanwhile heat cast iron skillet to medium high and cook the bacon in batches, flipping once and letting the pieces get crispy. Set on a towel to drain. Leave 2 tablespoons bacon grease in the pan and add mushrooms, stirring to coat. Return heat to medium and cook for 6-7 minutes, until mushrooms are softened and browned.
  3. Remove mushrooms from pan and set aside. Add the olive oil and bring to medium-high heat. Stir in garlic and let cook for 1 minute, until fragrant, then add Kale Italia greens and 1/4 teaspoons salt. Stir to coat, turn heat down to medium, and cook for 3 minutes, until greens are wilted.
  4. Assemble each bowl with greens, mushrooms and bacon. Drizzle with some of the leftover bacon fat if you desire.
