When I went on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic last year, our group's favorite breakfast by far was the baked oatmeal.  I had never even heard of this before, but seriously--so good!  Sort of tastes like a oatmeal cookies and we ate ours with yogurt and pineapple.  This is a great recipe because you can add raisins, craisins, or any fruit you want.  The recipe says to bake in a 13 x 9 pan, but you probably could use a smaller, square pan and make it a little thicker.  (Just bake it a few minutes longer.)  Definitely give this one a try.

Baked Oatmeal

(serves 6)

1 1/2 cups quick oats

1/2 cup sugar 

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup melted butter 

1 egg

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13 x 9 x 2 baking pan.
Combine all ingredients together. Spread on prepared baking pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Immediately spoon into a bowl. Top with warm milk, fresh fruit, or brown sugar if desired.
