{birthday} breakfast-ing

If you know our family at all, you know that November = birthdays around here. Four birthday's in eight days (November 9 | 12 | 13 | 17) and as the wife/mom I try to make each person's day special someway, somehow.

Matt's turn is first and although he enjoys dessert, the real way to his heart is through breakfast food. His current favorite? Baked oatmeal.

A MOPS mom made this baked oatmeal recipe last year for a MOPS meeting and I just had to get my hands on it. It's quickly become a family favorite. As an added bonus, it can be mixed up the night before and in the morning you just have to pop it in the oven.

Baked Oatmeal

6 eggs (We think it's too egg-y with 6 eggs, I used 5 this time and it was perfect)
1 C oil
1 C sugar
3 2/3 C oatmeal
1 T baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 C milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon

Mix ingredients together. Refrigerate overnight (in mixing bowl). Bake in a greased, uncovered 9x13 pan for 1/2 hr. at 350. Warm milk and pour over individual servings of oatmeal. Cinnamon, sugar, raisins and brown sugar can be sprinkled over top.

(I started baking the oatmeal in a muffin tin and we like the individual servings, plus it doesn't take as long to bake - usually about 20 minutes. Makes about 18 regular sized "muffins".)

Happy birthday, Matt! We love you!
