Savory Oatmeal- Is it possible

I can not get my husband to enjoy oatmeal as I make it with steel cut oats, a touch of brown sugar, walnuts and raisins. I suspect if I could make it savory he would like it- what flavorings can I use?
Cheese and savory seasonings of choice. Think of it like any grain (rice, farro, barley, bulgur, grits, polenta, et cet.)
You might find some canned haggis and try that out on him.
For things made from scratch, I'd use steel-cut oats and as mentioned earlier, fix them like polenta - add cheese and some herbs. As a matter of fact I like the idea so much I think I'll try that this weekend - thanks Karl!
My former hated the fact that I made oatmeal with cream and bananas and brown sugar. He alway said the way he was used to involved butter- as grits I suppose.
Love the oatmeal as polenta idea.
