Baked Oatmeal, because Shelley Asked!

Here is the recipe I use for baked oatmeal..  Normally I double this because it keeps well for leftovers. This makes a great dinner too, but you'd better serve up something salty and eggy with it or your man might grimace.

  • 6 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

To save money I typically sprinkle cinnamon over the top rather than measure exactly a teaspoon in the mix.  Also we love berries with this and I never make it without some kind of fruit.  You could measure 1 cup into the mix or just sprinkle berries over the top.  We use blueberries, raspberries, and sometimes I'll slice up an apple over the top.. it's so yummy.

Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl and all wet in another combine the two bowls and mix well.  Pour in a 9x13 dish.
Bake in 350 degree over for about 45 minutes.
Serve it up in bowls and pour a little milk over the top.
