Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Bake

When my brother, sister and I were young, Mom would bake this cinnamon-scented oatmeal before driving us to school. Whenever I make it, I have lots of happy memories. —Vincent Taylor, Houston, Texas

    It was ok. For us, it's a "once-in-awhile" recipe.

    Absolutely delicious! Made it the night before and popped it back in the oven to reheat the next morning. Plan on reheating the leftovers in the microwave tomorrow morning. So very good and easy to make, too! I will probably double the recipe next time!

    It was good, but very sweet and very filling. It's not something I will make a lot but will enjoy it on occasion.

    Whole family thoroughly enjoyed this for dinner. It never set around the edges as much as I thought it was during the baking time, but it helped after sitting for 10 minutes. Almost burnt the topping. Make sure it is 7-8 inches away from broiler and not closer. Oh, and I added a mashed over-ripe banana to the oatmeal mixture, too.

    This was good, but super sweet and very rich. It was more of a dessert than a breakfast.

    My whole family really enjoyed this. My husband is usually picky when it comes to oatmeal bakes but this one he loved. We had to fight him for the last bite! I used strawberries in place of the blueberries because it's what I had on hand. I also had to leave out the nuts because I didn't have any. I will definitely be making this again for breakfast!
