Baked Oatmeal:

This is one of my dad's absolute favorite breakfasts!!! It's really easy and very yummy and a great change of pace from regular oatmeal. I hope you give it a try and enjoy it as much as we do!

3 cups quick oats
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 tsp. maple syrup or 1/4 tsp. maple flavoring
1/2 cup raisins, or more if you like

In a large mixing bowl, beat all ingredients except cinnamon until well combined. Pour into a greased 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve!

-We have a few picky eaters, so we usually do half with and half without raisins.
-I eat it just like it is, but most of my family likes milk over top of it.
-You can make this the night before and bake it when you get up in the morning. Just cover it before you put it in the fridge and leave it out on the counter while your oven pre-heats in the morning so that it won't be so cold.
