Amish Baked Oatmeal

Ya! We have a follower! Thanks, Shawn! This recipe is for you!

I originally got this recipe from a friend whose sister used to live in Pennsylvania near Amish Country. I changed a couple of things like adding raisins and cinnamon. (Yes, Shawn, you can leave the raisins out!) It is a good comfort breakfast food and great to serve to company. I normally use rice milk to make mine dairy free. I've experimented, too, with using less sugar (1/4 cup), 2 eggs whites, and 3 TB butter and it worked well, just make sure you add a little more cinnamon.

Getting the request for this recipe made me realize that I have a lot of oatmeal recipes as I've already posted a recipe for Steel-cut Oatmeal. I can already think of a couple of other ones that I use on a regular basis that I'll post someday in the future, especially with the weather turning cooler. I guess I like oatmeal. I think it is such a comfort food.

Amish Baked Oatmeal
serves 4-6

1 1/2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
one egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins

Combine ingredients mixing well. Spread evenly in 8X8 buttered pan. Bake 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes until edges slightly golden brown. Spoon into bowls. Top with milk, fruit, and powdered sugar.

You have one "dedicated" follower that is trying the recipes!!!

Baked oatmeal is tasty, simple and easy! I would add a bit less salt.

I am not a oatmeal "lover" (had it every saturday growing up after TeaQueen left the house) :) but it was GOOD and I will make it again.

I am eating the leftovers the next morning. My son even ate some and he not a good judge unless it is chicken nuggets or pizza!
