In medium bowl, combine oats and egg. Mix until oats are completely coated.
In 10-inch skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add oat mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes, or until oats are dry, separated and lightly browned.
Add liquid and salt, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 more minutes, or until liquid evaporates.
