This is a favorite breakfast dish you’ll find at any Amish restaurant. Birdy, from The Devoted, has a unique take on baked oatmeal and adds cinnamon, walnuts and raisins. So like Birdy.
Birdy’s Baked Oatmeal
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
½ teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
3 cups quick oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
½ cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
½ cup raisins (optional)
Cream together butter, brown sugar and eggs. Add the rest of the ingredients to the creamed mixture. Bake in a 9×9” pan at 350 for 20-30 minutes (depending on your oven). Can be mixed the night before and baked in the morning. It might take a little more time to bake if the batter isn’t at room temperature. Enjoy!
