Baked Oatmeal

Serves 6

Letting the oatmeal sit overnight produces a silky texture to this flavorful dish.

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup pecans, chopped and toasted
  • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup melted butter, slightly cooled
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 cups blueberries, or other berries (fresh or frozen)

Generously butter an 8-inch square pan and set aside. In a bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a measuring cup, beat together wet ingredients, then pour into dry. Stir to combine. Add berries and stir again. Pour into prepared pan, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Preheat oven to 375°. Bake, uncovered, for 35–45 minutes, or until golden and set. Serve with warm milk, if desired.
