I got this recipe for Amish Baked Oatmeal from Blissfully Domestic in 2008. I don't know if it is really Amish, but I do know that it is baked and has oatmeal. What? You don't know what baked oatmeal is? Basically, you mix together oatmeal, milk, butter, egg, a little sugar and bake it. It is a great thing to have as the weather cools down. Best of all, you can prepare it the night before and put it in the oven when everyone is in the shower. A half hour later, warm breakfast is ready for everyone and you did not start your day by slaving over a stove. What can be better than that?
Amish Baked Oatmeal
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1/3 cup brown sugar (recipe calls for 1/2, but I reduced it)
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup of butter
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch of salt (I used 1/8 teaspoon)
Mix all together and place in greased 8 x 8 pan. Cover and place in refrigerator or leave uncovered and bake immediately for 30 minutes at 350F. (If you leave the cover on when you bake it, it is too soggy.)
Top with berries or eat plain (we like it straight out of the pan).
Seriously, is a quick and easy addition to your breakfast rotation.
