Amish Baked Oatmeal

(4 servings)

  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit (optional)
This recipe was sent to us by David C. who says this is an old family recipe and a favorite of his. I gave it try this morning (June 2013). I used equal parts raisins and cranberries to make up the 1/2 cup of dried fruit. I enjoyed this dish. The butter transforms the way the oats taste and it was fun to have a slice of oatmeal instead of the usual bowl. The only adjustment I'd make next time is to reduce the salt to 1/2 teaspoon.

It's called Amish Oatmeal because that what the card says in my mom's recipe file. She doesn't remember why she called it Amish. By any name, this is a great breakfast.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank davidchicks for this recipe.
