Baked Oatmeal

On Saturday I normally take part in Saturday Stirrings with Dee Dee at It Coulda' Been Worse, but she is at She Speaks for a blog convention so I will not disappoint, I am going to give you a really easy recipe, we have this all the time!
Baked Oatmeal
3 Cups quick cook oatmeal
1/2 Cup white or brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 cup of applesauce
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix it all together (dry oatmeal) and put in a 9x13 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Eat and enjoy!

This recipe can be changed in so may ways, sometimes I mash up 2 small banana's and add 1/4 of a cup of walnuts omitting the applesauce and cloves.  Bake the same.

I also chop up a large can of peaches and use those instead of applesauce I also change the milk for cream and no cloves.  Bake the same.

You can put 1/2 a can of pumpkin instead of applesauce, I then also add ginger it is like pumpkin pie.

You can add just about any fruit you want and it is great, I have done pears and mixed fruit.  I hope you all like this very easy recipe!

Oh yum! I had this one time at a Bed 'n Breakfast with my hubby and it was so good. I've always wondered how it was made!
