Baked Oatmeal

baked oatmeal 2

As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, we had quite an exciting weekend.  And around here, exciting things require FOOD…and plenty of it.  

Saturday started off with our daughter’s black belt test.  These tests are several hours long and require a good, hearty breakfast.  With this in mind, she chose Baked Oatmeal.  We first had baked oatmeal when staying with a family in Missouri.  This daughter of ours doesn’t like oatmeal, so when Baked Oatmeal was served to us at breakfast she was a little concerned.  Because she has a very tender heart and wouldn’t dream of hurting anyone’s feelings, she tried it and much to her surprised…LOVED it!  The texture is very different than stove top oatmeal, which is what made it great for her.  Since it was served to us with peaches that first time -and we loved it – we still always serve it with peaches.  

This dish was perfect for this occasion.  We had seven people (sharing two bathrooms) who needed to get ready, eat breakfast and be out the door by 8:15 am…on a Saturday!  The oatmeal needs to bake about an hour so some planning is involved.  I made a recipe and a half to make sure we had enough (9×13 pan).  The night before, my daughter mixed the dry ingredients in a large bowl with a lid, so that cut way down on the prep time the next morning.  (I have also mixed the wet ingredients in a Mason jar and stored them in the frig overnight.  They do need to be shaken really well before used.)  I got ready while it baked, and sitting on top of the stove (all eyes off) it stayed warm and people could eat whenever they wanted.  

 1 pot of coffee + 1 warm baked oatmeal + can chilled peaches =  7 full and happy people

    I’ve only tried baked oatmeal once, but I did like it. Is it something that reheats well- like if there are leftovers?

      Yes, I like it left over. Although the recipe is easily cut in half. I heat it in the microwave. It may be a little more dry but I like milk on mine so it’s hard to say.

    Love baked oatmeal! Have you ever tried adding pumpkin? Adds a nice color and flavor.
