Baked Oatmeal....

The beginning of this week was cold and rainy. We were all craving a warm breakfast in the morning and Madeline reminded us that we haven't had Baked Oatmeal in awhile. Which was a great idea, because we ate it not only for breakfast, but also for our after school snack and then again as an evening snack.  It's healthy right? 

This recipe originally comes from my friend Laura. We would enjoy it for our weekly team meetings at work! What a great way to start your day at work...wouldn't you agree?

Baked Oatmeal
1 cup oil
1 1/2 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
6 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
2 cups milk

Mix oil, sugar, vanilla and eggs thoroughly. Add baking power, salt, and milk, stirring til well combined; add oatmeal, again, mix well. Pour into greased 9x13 cake pan. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Various serving options:
1. Serve warm from the oven in bowls, alone or with cold milk, brown sugar, and/or berries.
2. Serve warm from the oven in bowls with berries and whip cream.
3. Cool completely, and cut into squares- the squares can be wrapped individually and placed in freezer. Makes for a convenient and quick breakfast. (warm in microwave for 30-40 seconds)

Don't you love when breakfast tastes like dessert??

I have one more picture to share with you....

Wow, I've never heard of anyone using quick cooking oats for baked oatmeal...I've only seen the steel cut variety. It's nice to know you can do it with quick cooking oats, too (especially seeing as that's the kind I always have lying around). Excellent recipe! -
