I made this actually as the main course today for someone that has a fair number of food allergies/intolerances and said that they ate oatmeal fairly often.  I cut the recipe in half & it made four nice servings.  Served warmed organic fat-free lactose free milk in a creamer on the side and a side of sliced fresh peaches (Last Tango Peach - if you haven't had them, they are large & dee-lish!  I'm going back for more) gently sauteed with orange juice and a bit of cinnamon.  Served it in a cereal bowl and then the guest could top with milk & peaches as desired.  I have to say this was a little drier than I thought it might be, but very tasty, and the milk and peaches were just right.   Had some homemade muffins also & garnished the plate with a couple of fresh strawberries & orange slices.  It was a hit!

I would serve it with a side of sausage next time but this guest had not mentioned if she could eat the breakfast meat of the South when she gave me her list.  lol!  (She can and does.)  Sausage patties would be tasty with this.  Good for cooler weather.  Thanks for the recipe!

I really like using toasted nuts much better than raw.

I would suggest definately using the rolled oats. I've done this one before and using quick cook oats makes it look and feel like wallpaper paste. The rolled oats hold their own a lot better than the other types.

You could add in so many different things to this: apple pie filling, top with homemade pear butter, edited to remove something that was already said Smiling  ..the options are endless.

I make something similar to this without the dairy, eggs and brown sugar and I top it with a berry topping: 

Cook oatmeal and spices and take a 9 oz package of frozen mixed berries, thaw berries and heat in saucepan with 1 C sugar...

Put oatmeal in baking dish, top with berries cook for a few minutes until berries infuse with oatmeal.

Tastes like a cobbler!

This ones great for "gluten frees" who can tolerate oats.

I can get behind something that tastes like cobbler.  Yum!

Hi there. This recipe sounds really good---so satisfying & hearty, especially now that we've moved into fall (and winter isn't far behind)! I'll have to give this a whirl sometime and experiment with some unique variations. Thanks for sharing!

We stayed at 1830 Quince Tree House's previous B&B and they served a baked oatmeal in individual ramekins.  It was very good!  I found a few recipes online and tried them but neither of them turned out, I would really like to get that recipe, but I haven't seen them post on here in a long time

I make this and add a drained can of fruit cocktail or even better a drained and rinsed can of DelMonte Tropical Fruit chunks. Serve with vanilla yogurt on the side. A guest sent me her recipe that is very similar.
