Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal

2 cups of Quick Oats or 2 ¼ cups of Old Fashioned Oats
1/3 cup white sugar (You can use less, it was quite sweet)
3 1/3 cups milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar

(I also added some cinnamon, and a peeled, chopped Granny Smith apple)

Grease an 8-inch baking dish. In a large bowl, combine oats and white sugar (cinnamon and apple). In a medium bowl, combine milk, egg, and vanilla; mix well. Add to oat mixture; mix well and pour into baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until center jiggles slightly. (My center didn’t jiggle after 40 minutes…well, MY center always jiggles, but the oatmeal center wasn’t jiggly. So, maybe cook for 30-35 minutes.) Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over the top of oatmeal. Using the back of a spoon, gently spread sugar into a thin layer. Hide this dish from your husband and small children so that you can eat your fill before sharing with with the rest of the piglets in the house.

Sorry, no pictures. It didn't last long enough for me to get out the camera. And for those of you who think oatmeal makes you want to gag (mom), you might even like this less like oatmeal, more like apple crisp breakfast.
