Oatmeal Cranberry Breakfast Bake Recipe

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."

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups fat-free milk
