This time of the year offers no time to sit down to a hot breakfast. In order to have the time to make one, we have to consider getting up at least one hour ahead of our alarm just to be able to prepare it and clean up.
This breakfast is an "On-The-Go Baked Oatmeal". Make it the night before and have it the entire week. A quick heat-up with added milk makes a quick breakfast that can be eaten in the car or at the table. Healthy and flavorful.
My daughter came home bragging about her future mother-in-law's breakfast dish that she makes every Sunday before church and they have the rest of the week. I listened and then pulled out my recipe box and realized that I had the same recipe; yet mine never created memories the way theirs did.
The reason? I never made it.
Lesson learned. A recipe is like wood—unless you use it your don't realize its awesomeness. My new memory about my Baked Oatmeal is that it is now passed on to you and you can impress your inlaws.
