My in-laws get credit for today's post. Actually, I believe this is my sister-in-law's husband's family's recipe. (Is it possible for me to use more possessive apostrophes in that sentence? Ha!) I first tasted this warm and comforting breakfast dish when we were all together as family one weekend. I love oatmeal, and I love finding new ways to prepare it. This recipe is a great twist on an old favorite. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does! 

Oatmeal Bake


In a large mixing bowl, mix the vegetable oil, brown sugar, and eggs.


Then, add the baking powder and salt. Stir to combine.


Add the oats and milk. Stir to combine.



Add mix-ins of your choice: dried fruit, nuts, apples, cinnamon, etc.



Pour mixture into a 9" x 13" greased baking dish.



Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve with warm milk. Enjoy!
