Baked oatmeal? Never heard of it. I’ve been cooking for over 40 years and never heard of baked oatmeal. I was introduced to baked oatmeal on 11/12. It took a few days but I finally posted Doris’ Baked Oatmeal recipe on the 15th. On the 16th I get an email from another one of those friends where time is meaningless. I start to read her email and I can’t believe what I’m reading.
When I opened e-mail and saw your Gary’s kitchen post about baked oatmeal from the 15th, my head dropped down to look at the breakfast I was eating. No Lie. I love the randomness of the universe sometimes.
Warm Baked Oatmeal
1 3/4 cups water
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats-I use thick cut
3 TBS brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp each nutmeg, NACL
2 egg whites or 4oz egg substitute
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup- your favorite dried fruit-optional (Unsweetened cranberries or cherries are particularly nice here)
- Boil water and add oatmeal reduce to simmer 5 minutes. add the dry ingredients mix well.
- Whisk the eggs and milk together, add to the oatmeal. Add the dried fruit.
- Pour into 8 inch baking pan sprayed with non stick stuff. Bake about 25-30 minutes at 350.
- Great topped with yogurt and toasted almonds or pecans.
About 105 calories without the topping, Bonus fiber from the oatmeal and nuts, protein from the eggs.
So in less than a week I get two baked oatmeal recipes. Must be Karma. I haven’t made this baked oatmeal recipe yet but if Frenchy makes it, it has to be good.
