Breakfast Week: Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal
serves 9

1/2 Cup Applesauce
3/4 Cup White Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Cup Milk
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
3 Cups Quick Cooking Oats
1/2 Cup Craisins
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

Beat together applesauce and sugar.  Mix in eggs, milk, salt, baking powder, and oatmeal.  Beat well then stir in craisins.  Pour into a lightly greased pie pan.  Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.  Refrigerate overnight.  The next morning preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until firm.  Serve hot with a splash of milk.

Oatmeal is one of my favorite foods, I eat it all of the time.  I'm also addicted to craisins.  Obviously nothing can go wrong here!  But I guess if there was some catastrophic world shortage of craisins, you could substitute raisins, dried apricots, or any other dried fruit.  One more thing, if you're overly protective of your bake-ware, you can put the oatmeal in a cold oven and then turn to preheat when you bake it in the morning.  I'd hate to be responsible for a broken pie plate and oatmeal all over the bottom of your oven.
