Recipe of the Week:

Michelle W.’s Baked Oatmeal

The following shared with me by my wonderful neighbor and adopted mom, who received it from the owner of a bed and breakfast in the heart of Amish country, Lancaster Pennsylvania.

I double the recipe, mix it overnight and cover with plastic wrap, and store in the fridge. the next morning, as soon as I awaken, I remove wrap, put pan in a cold oven, turn oven on to 350 and bake about 1 hour or until the top is brown and crunchy.  I like to add fresh fruit (blueberries, peaches, apples are divine) prior to baking but my son prefers it plain. This is my “go-to” dish when I have a houseful of guests for holidays.

Baked Oatmeal
Preheat oven to 350
In a 2 qt baking dish, mix well:
2 eggs
1 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C vegetable oil  (can substitute applesauce but top will not be as crunchy)
1 tsp vanilla

Add and mix well:
3C oatmeal 
1C milk
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tsp cinnamon/spice of your choice

Bake about 30-45 minutes or until top is brown and crunchy
