Baked Oatmeal Tips and Tricks
Have you all tried my Baked Oatmeal recipe? I really love it and we seriously eat is almost every week. My 2 year old gobbles it up. You can view my original post here.
Here’s the recipe: *Tips at the bottom*
Baked Oatmeal 5 eggs, beaten 1 1/2 cup oil 2 Tbsp vanilla 4 cups milk Mix well, then add: 1 1/2 tsp salt 2 Tbsp baking powder 2 Tbsp cinnamon 2 1/2 cups packed brown sugar Mix well, then add: 10 cup oatmeal (not quick oats) 2 cups dried fruit (I love the sunmaid fruit bits) Pour into a greased 9x13x2 pan and bake for 55 min at 350. I even bought a special pan just for my baked oatmeal with a lid. We love it and like I said, always in the fridge. Put some in a bowl, reheat in the microwave for 60-80 seconds and serve with milk or half and half! ENJOY! I had a reader let me know that her oatmeal bubbled over and left her kitchen smelling smokey and oily rather than warm and full of cinnamon. Sad! So, I thought I would try mixing up my oatmeal and letting it set in the fridge overnight.
It got nice and thick. Then I poured it into the greased pan and baked it. It turned out fabulous and no bubbling over. Give that a try if you are worried your pan may be too shallow. Do try to bake it in a deep 9X13 pan. I bought a metal one at Walmart made by Calphalon that has a dome lid as well. I call it my oatmeal pan
