:: From Our Kitchen ::

Comfort food for a chilly winter morning, inexpensive, and quick to prepare, this oatmeal was a welcome addition to our breakfast recipe stash. Not to mention how good oatmeal is for our health! For extra deliciousness (and nutritiousness), top with fresh berries.

:: Baked Oatmeal ::

1/3 cup butter
2 large eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar (honey works too!)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon nutmeg or 1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup plus 2 T. milk
3 cups oats of your choice

1. Melt butter.
2. Grease 1 1/2 quart baking dish and drop in eggs and beat well.
3. Add brown sugar, baking powder, vanilla, nutmeg or cinnamon, and salt. Mix well, no lumps.
4. Whisk in butter and both measures of milk, then add oats.
5. Stir well, and refrigerate overnight.
6. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 35-45 min, or until set in the middle.
