Time Saver breakfast!!!! Baked Oatmeal...

Wednesdays are typically our "oatmeal for breakfast" day around here.  Not sure when or why that even started, but it stuck years ago and I haven't changed it since.  

When I say "oatmeal for breakfast", I mean any breakfast recipe that uses oats.  So for us that is either oatmeal pancakes, granola, regular old fashioned oatmeal (with butter, cream and brown sugar! YUMMM!!!) or this recipe I'm sharing today- Baked Oatmeal!!!

This list of ingredients needed is not fancy- butter, sugar, oats, eggs, oil, salt.  Simple.  

But wait.... why did I say this is a TIME SAVER breakfast???  Oh dear friends!  You make this THE NIGHT BEFORE!!!  It takes mere minutes to mix together,  then cover with plastic wrap, stick in the fridge overnight, and then next morning you just take off the plastic wrap and let it bake while you finish getting dressed.  As soon as the timer of your oven goes off, everyone can sit down at the table to eat.  Happy well-fed family and happy mother for extra minutes to get yourself and your children ready for the day.

Baked Oatmeal
1/2 cup oil of choice
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
3 cups old fashioned oats
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
Mix all your ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Pour in a buttered 8x8 pan.  Cover with plastic wrap and set in the fridge overnight.  The next morning, take plastic wrap off your pan and bake for 45-50 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  
This makes 6 good sized servings.  

We prefer to serve this with heavy cream drizzled on top.  Super tasty.  Super easy.
