Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Whatever you have for breakfast should stick with you until lunch, especially when you’re out working on the farm. Our go-to breakfast is soaked oatmeal. Make it up the night before, turn the burner on low under the pan of oatmeal in the morning, head out to do morning chores and viola! Breakfast is ready when we come back in. We add in seasonally available fruit, nuts and raisins to mix it up a little. We do vary a little with our breakfast options, homemade granola, eggs & bacon and on occasion, boxed cereal. Most of the time when it comes to breakfast, oatmeal is on the menu.
One morning last winter, when it was chilly in the house and I was thinking of ways to help warm things up, I started thinking about baked oatmeal. After looking around for some recipes and not finding what I was looking for, Travis decided to make up his own recipe. He’s good like that.
