Easy Fall Breakfast: Baked Apple Oatmeal

Monday started off better this week thanks to pre-planning and this recipe for a nourishing baked apple oatmeal. I didn't have wheat germ so I reduced the milk to 3 cups. I also mixed it on Sunday night and refrigerated the dish. When I woke up, I put it in a cold oven and turned it to 350. It baked in the 45 minutes it took us to get ready for work. There was no school and our daughter had a friend stay over. We all had a good, hot breakfast -- on a MONDAY! We will be making this recipe often this winter.


4 cups milk
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups chopped peeled apples
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins
1 cup toasted wheat germ

In a large saucepan, heat milk, brown sugar, butter, salt and cinnamon. Add remaining ingredients; mix gently.
Spoon into a greased 2-quart casserole. Cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Yield: 6-8 servings.
