Cold March Mornings and Baked Oatmeal Cravings

Hot and Ready to Eat!

Baked Oatmeal - Hot and Ready to Eat!

This year has been the craziest for weather in a long while. With temps in the 70’s, 30’s, 50’s, 70’s,  then in the 30’s again, we’re not exactly sure just how to dress for the day.  BUT one thing is for certain – when you wake up and it’s 36 degrees outside, then it is definitely time for Baked Oatmeal!

The recipe, listed here from  the Epicurious.com website, has to be one of our favorites. We enjoy it for breakfast hot out of the oven with Greek yogurt on top – then again it’s also quite tasty for dessert (with just a little vanilla ice cream on top….!)

With a few quick steps, you are on your way to the ideal tasty, toasty meal on a chilly March morning.

Add More Fruit on Top, then Add Topping

Today, we had fresh strawberries and frozen blackberries, plus the bananas for the bottom layer. Use any mix and match of fruit that’s on hand to make it your very own.

Hope you find it just as filling and flavorful as we do for a healthy, belly warming start to the day.

    • Thanks so much for stopping in – we love oatmeal and are always trying new dishes that include it. But this Baked Oatmeal is a favorite of ours. I’m glad you found us, and we are about to celebrate 25 yrs of marriage in June of this year! See what cooking and travel does for you? Tee hee! (Thanks for the compliment!)
