Baked Oatmeal

. .. . . . .. . . . .. . .
These cold winter mornings bring on the likings of huge hearty breakfasts and hot beverages.  Coffee is always a staple in our home - no matter the weather.  And in all honesty.... it's really only on weekends - particularly Saturday or Sunday mornings- that a bigger breakfast will be fashioned.

I kid you not...

Aubrey will have THREE servings of Baked Oatmeal - nearly every time I make it.  Caleb scarfs it down, too.  Served with milk, poured over top!

I'm so glad.

There is certainly something to be said about kids and oatmeal.  It generally is not a kid-friendly sort of breakfast meal.  Am I right?  Maybe even for some adults.  But, don't knock it till you try it.  I think you'll be surprised ...

Here is the recipe, I use, for:  
::Baked Oatmeal::

2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Mix together thoroughly, sometimes whisking if need be...

Stir in:
 3 cups of quick oatmeal
1/2 cup raisins, craisins and or chopped nuts (all optional)

Pour into greased (I don't because I use my Pampered Chef Stone) 8x8 square baking pan.  Bake at 350* for approximately 25 minutes.
Delicious, served warm with milk.  And a wonderful dish to serve to guests on an overnight stay.
