Baked Oatmeal is one of the easiest breakfasts I make and luckily, it's loved by every member of the family. As a result, we make it at least a couple times a month. It is simple and filling and the leftovers keep very well in the refrigerator or freezer. Not that we usually have any leftovers, but it's happened once or twice.
3 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup melted butter or oil
1 1/2 cups milk
Combine all ingredients and pour into a greased 8x8 pan. Cook at 350 for 35 minutes. Serve warm.
Side note: The uncooked pan of oatmeal can be stored in the refrigerator overnight. When I wake up, I turn on the oven and bake it while I am getting ready. Yes, I even put it in the oven before it is preheated, just add about ten extra minutes. I love the simplicity of this breakfast!
FREEZER MEAL: Cool completely and then portion into individual servings. Store in airtight freezer bags or small containers. Reheat in the microwave with about a tablespoon of water.
