Baked oatmeal is a traditional and comforting Amish breakfast casserole. Unlike regular oatmeal, which is made on the stove-top and has a porridge-like consistency, baked oatmeal is made in the oven and has a consistency similar to that of bread pudding. There are endless variations — the recipe is easily adapted with whatever fruits and nuts you have on hand.

Ingredients

  • old-fashioned rolled oats : 2 cup (not instant)
  • light brown sugar : 0.75 cup
  • walnuts or pecans : 1 cup (divided)
  • raisins : 0.5 cup
  • baking powder : 1 tsp
  • cinnamon : 2 tsp
  • salt : 0.5 tsp
  • egg : 2 Tbsp (large)
  • milk : 2 cup
  • vanilla extract : 1 tsp
  • unsalted butter : 4 Tbsp (melted, plus more for greasing the dish)
  • tart : 2 piece (yet sweet baking apples, such as Honey Crisp, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks (about 2 cups))
  • apple : 2 piece

  7. Bake for about 40 minutes, until the oats are set and the top is golden. Be sure to save some leftovers; oddly, this dish is just as delicious — if not more so — cold out of the refrigerator the next day.
