Baked oatmeal is a popular breakfast in my house. I make it often for my husband and seven children because it's budget friendly and versatile. I like to add a variety of dried fruits or nuts to mix it up. —Christina Smeal, Fairmont, West Virginia
“This is a Christmas-morning tradition at my brother-in-law's. You could top with vanilla yogurt, milk, applesauce or maple syrup, but it's so warm and comforting on its own!”

I like to prepare this baked oatmeal on weekend mornings when I have a little extra time," says Angela Higinbotham of Willis, California. "Even guests who typically don't like oatmeal fill their bowls with this hearty version, flavored with dried cranberries, brown sugar and cinnamon."
I found this recipe online, and was convinced I was eating yummy apple crisp for breakfast. I even cut down on the butter, but this hearty oatmeal remained moist and scrumptious, and worked great when cooked overnight. —Monica Lord, Collegeville, Pennsylvania
