Do you have a lot of cooked oatmeal left over after breakfast? Follow your favorite recipe for bread pudding, but use the oatmeal instead of bread. Serve it warm from the oven with sweet cream. —Neola Lee, Alexandria, Nebraska
"The original recipe for this dessert came from a farming magazine," writes Cora Uden of Juniata, Nebraska. "I changed several ingredients in it to cut down on calories, but it's still homey and satisfying. In fact, we like this version as well as the original."
THIS tried-and-true dessert was printed in a cookbook published by a local organization. I have made a few changes, and it has become one of our favorite desserts.
I like to eat mine warm with a dollop of whipped cream...but my husband eats his cold with a scoop of ice cream!
