As already established on this blog, my family loves brinner. I try to make breakfast for dinner at least once every other week, although I think they could eat it every night without complaining! A few nights ago I made Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal and it was delicious ~ and a really inexpensive meal to make! I used a basic baked oatmeal recipe and tweaked it a little, and here's what I ended up with....
I realize it would have been better to take the picture before we ate most of it, but there were hungry mouths to feed!
Here's the recipe:
3 eggs beaten
2 cups milk
1 tbsp cinnamon
a few dashes salt
5 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
4 tsp baking powder
Mix all ingredients. Add one can apple pie filling (chop up the apples into bite-sized pieces). Pour into greased 9x13" pan. Bake at 350 for around 30 minutes or until golden brown. Sometimes needs to set up for 10 or so minutes after baking.
This would also be a really good dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some caramel sauce....mmmm.....glad we have some leftovers...
