This recipes is one I've adapted from Allrecipes.com. It's a keeper. Ole Sweetie-Pi won't go near this; he prefers frosted cereals; methinks he is still a kid at heart.
(adapted from: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/baked-oatmeal-ii/Detail.aspx)
3 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup dried fruit, all one kind, or a mixture of your choice, nuts, etc.
Preheat oven to 350*F.
Mix all ingredients together and pour into a 9x13 inch baking pan or casserole large enough to hold the ingredients. Bake for 40 minutes.
MY NOTES: Because I upped the ingredients from the original recipe, this makes about six servings.This reheats well in the microwave with milk added to it while it reheats. I think the addition of the wheat germ makes this a little dry; it doesn't bother me, but you might want to add a bit more milk.
I think I need some dried blueberries and pecans the next time....yummmmmm!
