Way back in November 2008, I shared our family's favorite "baked oatmeal" recipe.
It is still our family favorite, and now our granddaughter is learning to make it too.
She requests this recipe often, and so do we.  Early in the morning, on a recent visit,
I  walked into the kitchen of their home and saw her stirring the ingredients, that her and
her mother put in the bowl.  I smiled as I saw her sitting on the floor, stirring away.
Her mother has memorized the recipe, and soon this little one may too:)

I know there are many delicious "baked oatmeal" recipes on the Internet, but this one
remains our most requested.  We sometimes add blueberries, Craisins, apples,
walnuts, or whatever.  I buy baking dishes and give it already baked, as a gift.  The
recipient needs only to warm it the next morning.

A few months ago, I purchased some "Paula Dean" good quality bread pans,
at our local "Ollie's Store".
I filled one with the oatmeal ingredients and baked it.
When cool, I covered it with plastic wrap, added a bow and a card.
 A quick, simple, inexpensive way to say whatever you want your gift to say:)

Just a little something from me today.  Oh, and by the way, if you care to try this recipe,
you can type it in the small search bar on the left side of my top banner picture.

Happy Friday!

Oh, I forgot to mention just how pretty the pan of baked oatmeal looks with the big, cheerful bow. A delicious gift!

Thank you for this delicious recipe Judy, I have just cut and pasted it to glue onto a recipe card. Its similar to our flapjack recipe but with some differences and I love the idea of making it in a pan and gifting it :)
