Ok, since the FLAPJACK restaurant would not give out the recipe to their baked oatmeal, I tested tons of recipes to be able to have it at homeâ€¦and then found one close, adding and tweaking to make it better and I found this. Itâ€™s great as leftovers so morning doesn’t have to be so rushed.
Lisaâ€™s loaded Baked Oatmeal
21 ounce Quaker Quick 1-minute Oats (1/2 large 42 oz. Container)
1 pound of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of baking soda
14-16 oz. Jar of maraschino cherries, Chopped, reserve Â½ cup juice (in baking isle)
1-8 oz. pkge. Dole Mixed fruit, chopped (blueberries, raspberries, cherries, Dates are my fav.)
6-8 oz. chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 cups of melted butter
Mix oatmeal, brown sugar, baking soda, cherries, dried chopped fruit & Nuts in a large bowl. Beat eggs, milk, Â½ cup maraschino cherry juice and butter together and add to dry ingredients. Pour into a lightly greased 9 x 12 inch baking pan, spreading evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 â€“ 45 minutes till top is dark golden and middle seems set. Serve in a bowl with warmed milk and bananas if you wantâ€¦ I like it plain, cold and on ice cream as well. Freezes well.
(Picture: My Favorite variation: 2 cups steel cut oats soaked in water to cover 1 day. Dump that with another 2 cups of minute oats, 1-1/2 cups milk, 2 eggs, Â½ jar chopped maraschinos and half juice of jar, handful slivered almond, Â½ cup or so of dried cranberries â€¦.bake 50 minutes in 9 square pan.)
