Baked Oatmeal

One of the kids' favorite breakfasts is Baked Oatmeal.  We were given this delicious recipe from my good friend, Tami, years ago.  I love that I can prepare it the night before, and put it right into the oven in the morning.  It's easy, it's yummy, and just perfect for a chilly fall or winter morning!

Here is the basic recipe, but it's so versatile, you can add anything you like to change it up a bit.  We like to add raisins, or bananas, or apples, or blueberries.  But we love it "as is" too!

Baked Oatmeal

4 cups Old Fashioned oats
1 cup brown sugar (this can be reduced if you're adding fruit)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

Mix all dry ingredients together.  Add in wet ingredients, mixing well.  Pour into an ungreased 9 inch square pan.  Chill overnight in the fridge.  Then put in a cold oven and set to 350* for about 45 minutes to an hour.

Serve either "coffee cake" style, or place in bowls and pour milk over it to give it more of a traditional oatmeal consistency.  Enjoy!

*We double this for our family and place in a 9 x 13 dish.
