What's For Breakfast?
When Sarah's Kids spent a few days with us this summer, her son Isaac went home talking about the things that we ate. (Isn't that the focus of so many little boys?)
Isaac has been asking his mom to get the recipe for Baked Oatmeal, so I thought I would pull up an old post from 2008 and share it with you all, too.
October 21, 2008
I just remembered that I wanted to get this recipe out to you, when I walked into the kitchen and found Ben preparing it for tomorrow's breakfast. He knew what was on the meal calendar for tomorrow, and he decided to whip it up tonight so that it would be ready to pop into the oven first thing in the morning.
Don't tell me that your kids "Hate Oatmeal" ... they probably haven't tried this recipe yet.
About 7 years ago, my older teen boys went to a summer camp at a horse ranch in North Dakota, and came home ranting and raving about this new breakfast meal that they'd had. I suggested that they might like to get the recipe, and Jeremiah immediately emailed the cook and asked for it.
This is not only one of our kids' favorite breakfasts, but they also eat the leftovers as an afternoon snack if they're hungry.
1 cup Melted Butter
1 cup Brown Sugar
3 tsp. Cinnamon
3/4 tsp Salt
3 tsp. Baking Powder
1 1/2 cup Milk
1 cup Water
8 cups Oats (regular or old fashioned ... not instant oats)
Mix all ingredients together.
Pour into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.
Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.
Serve in a bowl.
Most of our kids like to have it topped with milk.
Another treat is to also top with fruit or applesauce.
