Baked Oatmeal Tips and Tricks

Have you all tried my Baked Oatmeal recipe?  I really love it and we seriously eat is almost every week.  My 2 year old gobbles it up.  You can view my original post here

Here’s the recipe:
*Tips at the bottom*


5 eggs, beaten
1 ½ cup oil
2 tablespoon vanilla
4 cups milk
Mix well, then add:
1 ½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoon cinnamon
2 ½ cups packed brown sugar.
Mix well, then add:
10 cup oatmeal (not quick oats)
2 cups dried fruit (I love the sunmaid fruit bits)


Pour into a greased 9x13x2 pan and bake for 55 min at 350. I even bought a special pan just for my baked oatmeal with a lid. We love it and like I said, always in the fridge.

Put some in a bowl, reheat in the microwave for 60-80 seconds and serve with milk or half and half!


I had a reader let me know that her oatmeal bubbled over and left her kitchen smelling smokey and oily rather than warm and full of cinnamon.  Sad!  So, I thought I would try mixing up my oatmeal and letting it set in the fridge overnight.

It got nice and thick.  Then I poured it into the greased pan and baked it.  It turned out fabulous and no bubbling over. 

Give that a try if you are worried your pan may be too shallow.  Do try to bake it in a deep 9X13 pan. 

I bought a metal one at Walmart made by Calphalon that has a dome lid as well.  I call it my oatmeal pan
