Baked Oatmeal – SimpleFrugal style!

I am not sure who shared this recipe with me but I remember thinking, where has this been all my life?

I had been cooking for my family for 15 years before this one came along. It is called Baked Oatmeal. Some have called it Breakfast Cake.

Call it what you want, it is sure to be a regular in any frugal home. At our house it is never the same – see variations in the Notes. One variation got its own post! See Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cake

Though the original recipe calls for eggs, this responds well to substitutes!!

We fix this on Sundays or any day we want a hearty breakfast. I might add sausages or bacon, too.
