A healthy start

Amish Baked Oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 1 t. cinnamon or nutmeg
  • 1 c. + 2 T. milk
  • 3 c. oats (regular or quick)
  1. In 1 1/2 qt. dish, beat eggs well.
  2. Add dry ingredients and mix well.
  3. Add butter and milk, then add oats.
  4. Stir well, and refrigerate overnight.
  5. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 35-45 minutes or until center is set.
  6. Serve hot with warm milk poured over.
I didn't even know there was such a thing as baked oatmeal but I really liked it! It was perfectly sweet; not overly so like some quick packaged oatmeals. Great with milk. Leftovers can be used for a few days, though it kind of tends to crumble. Once crumbled it's a nice addition to yogurt as well. Make your own parfaits!
