Baked Oatmeal

It’s officially comfort food season!

As the weather turns and the mornings get colder, I start craving warm comfort foods both for breakfast and dinner. One of my favorite breakfasts is baked oatmeal. My mom found this recipe years ago and it’s been a family favorite ever since. It’s one of the easiest recipes ever, and you can serve it with anything.

I could sit here and wax poetic about fall, and comfort foods, and how in love I am with my house. But I’d rather just give you this amazing recipe and leave you in peace to make it. I threw a batch together late last weekend and have been eating on it every day since.
