Baked Oatmeal

It astounds me that I haven't blogged this recipe yet. As many times as I have made this recipe and as much as I love oats in general, I was shocked when I realized this wasn't on the blog!

I have been making this tasty breakfast for over a year now. I think I ate it almost every weekday last winter. I would pile it into a large coffee mug that was probably really meant for soup, stick a spoon in it, drive the quarter mile to my school (yes, I drove everyday), pop it in the microwave after I unpacked all my teacher stuff and enjoy a hot breakfast before the kids walked into the room. It was so perfect and so easy to take with me everyday!

The sweet brown sugar, tart cranberries, and crunchy walnuts all make for the perfect combination. You can definitely change the ingredients up, use raisins instead of cranberries, or almonds instead of walnuts. This is one of the most comforting dishes of food and you get to enjoy it in the morning!

The recipe below makes 4-5 servings. I would usually double it so that I would have a larger batch. What? I was pregnant. :)

I was wondering if you thought I could do this in individual serving dishes and if so how long would I bake them?

Hi.  You can definitely make them individually (I think that's a great idea!).  I would start with about 15 minutes and work up from there.  Just make sure they are fairly set on the top and beginning to brown.  Enjoy!

would this work with steel cut oats?

You could definitely give it a try, although I haven't tried them with this particular recipe. Steel cut oats need to cook longer, so start with an additional 5 minutes and go from there. They may also need more liquid so you are going to have to play around with that part of it.

You want to look for a blueprint, or a system that will get you started step-by-step.
Since the shootings, several people who lost loved ones because of the school shooting have become vocal about the need for stronger gun control laws to prevent similar tragedies such as this from ever happening again. They will show the very best award for the fortunate
