What is baked oatmeal?

Baked oatmeal is essentially rolled oats mixed with milk, usually eggs, a bit of sweetener, and a few other good things. Then, it’s poured into a casserole dish and baked until golden and delicious. To serve, cut squares and place them on a plate or a bowl and top with a bit of cream and a few other toppings if you like – or you can go with nothing at all. Baked oatmeal is a super easy yet impressive breakfast, perfect for serving a crowd or meal prepping for weeknight recipes all week.
