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.
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.
