Why would you want to eat slop, you may ask? Well, if you’re a losing contestant on Big Brother, you have no choice (and probably fondly recall the days of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the “Have-Nots”). But if you’re in the mood for an easy, no-frills oatmeal that contains all your essential protein, vitamins, and nutrients, try making a big batch of Big Brother Slop to carry you through the week. At least you get to garnish it any way you want to! And if you call it porridge, you may find it more appealing.

You can also work it into legitimately tasty brunch and dessert options —get our Big Brother Lemon Chive Waffles recipe, and our Big Brother Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies recipe.
