Serve your family this nutritious, egg-fortified, meal-in-a-bowl baked oatmeal for breakfast. Eating a variety of grains not only ensures that you get more nutrients, but also helps make breakfast more interesting.
2 cups Quick Quaker® Oats or 2 1/4 cups Old Fashioned Quaker® Oats, uncooked
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3-1/3 cups fat-free milk (or 2%, whole milk)
1/2 cup liquid egg substitute with yolk (or 2 eggs, lightly beaten)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Spray 8-inch square glass baking dish with cooking spray.
- In large bowl, combine oats and granulated sugar. In medium bowl, combine milk, egg substitute and vanilla; mix well. Add to oat mixture; mix well. Pour into baking dish.
- Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until center jiggles slightly. Remove from oven to cooling rack.
- Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over top of oatmeal. Using back of spoon, gently spread sugar into a thin layer across entire surface of oatmeal. Return to oven; bake just until sugar melts, about 2 to 3 minutes. Set oven to broil. Broil 3 inches from heat until sugar bubbles and browns slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. (Watch carefully to prevent burning. It may be necessary to turn baking dish.) Spoon into bowls to serve.
Makes 8 servings.
