Baked Oatmeal

Here's a breakfast food that is especially good on cold winter mornings, although that doesn't prevent us from enjoying it in the summer as well. We were first introduced to baked oatmeal at the Gomez home in Athens, Wisconsin in late November a few years back when the weather was snowy and cold. It was delightful straight from the oven then with plenty of warm milk to pour over the top. I still prefer it with warm milk, but Gretel likes her's without any embellishments. Try it yourself, and you tell us your favorite way to eat it!

3 cups quick oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter (or oil)
2 eggs beaten
additional milk

Combine first eight ingredients. Spoon into greased 9" pan.

Bake at 350°F, 25-30 minutes.

Serve warm with milk.

Finally, let me apologize for the very brown picture, my eye wasn't looking for that when I framed the photo.


  1. Laura just made Baked Oatmeal for us over the weekend. She also adds blueberries and serves it with peaches and then milk! It was delicious!

  2. Hi Heather, blueberries and peaches sound like tasty additions. Does your basic recipe differ much from ours?

  3. I will have to try your recipe. We love our version from Ivy. I put raisins in ours and milk overtop. Warm milk is best but I usually save time and use it cold.

  4. Yes it is very similar. Ours uses more brown sugar (and of course we use whole milk!) :-)
