Wow! So easy and sooooo delicious! I (by mistake) added the vanilla milk to the mix before refrigerating and it was still heavenly! For personal preference, I added a bit more salt, some chopped pecans. And a light drizzle of heavy cream right out of the oven to top it off. Mine took a total of 45 minutes to bake. I will definitely be making this again and again!
awesome. Made some changes...used whole milk as a treat. Used apple sauce instead of butter/margaine..1/4 tsp cinnamon more we like cinnamon. I did have to bake mine almost 50 mins. It was very wet when mixing and was worried I screwed up. I used two fresh peaches which gave me about 1 1/2 cps. I also had 1/4 c fresh blue berries I threw in to use... made this with all intentions of packing for my husband breakfast/break for work today.. last night it came out of oven and we needed to try...did put half and half on husbands and a drop of whole milk on mine. I wondered why ?/ this sounded weird but do it...was great and a keeper and will use fresh blue berries instead of peaches when they are back in season. even posted pictures this time
My husband and I had this for breakfast this morning. This is definitely something I would make again. I replaced half of the almond extract with vanilla extract and added about half a cup of fresh blueberries to the mix (I love the combination of peaches, blueberries, and almond). I also used dairy milk (1 %), substituted applesauce for margarine, and served it with two tablespoons of fat free half and half. Overall, I am very happy with my substitutions and with the recipe itself. The only thing I would change is the baking time. I kept it in the oven for 40 minutes and it was still a little mushy in the center (I like my baked oatmeal to be a bit firmer) but that is a situation that can be very easily rectified.
This was my first time eating baked oatmeal. I used a granny smith apple instead of peaches (its what I had). I also used milk. When I first tasted it, I thought it was ok. I then added some vanilla yogurt on top and it was really good! My husband had the same opinion. The next day it was fabulous as well. Great for a snack as well, not just breakfast. I will definately make this again.
Kree this was wonderful. DH said that if it had ice cream on top it would make a great desert. I used skim milk instead of soy and egg substitute in place of the eggs. Mixed up the night before and cooked it 30 minutes as stated in the instructions. Served it with some fat free half and half. I cut the recipe in half for only the 2 of us. Thank you for sharing a wonderful recipe.
