Re: Hot cereal recipes

I make this baked oatmeal recipe like 4-5 times a week:

1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup raisins
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Beat together oil and sugar. Mix in eggs, milk, salt, baking powder, oatmeal. Beat well then stir in raisins. Pour into a lightly grease pie pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Refrigerate \
The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake in preheated oven until firm, about 35 minutes. Serve hot.

That is the original recipe but I make serveral substitiutions to make it healthier
I use applesauce instead of oil (3/4 cup)
cut way back on the sugar- i use 2 tbl of splenda baking mix
substitute raisins for any dried fruit (apples, cranberries, mango, etc....)
sub egg beaters for real eggs
add flax seed and wheat germ to your taste.
I have made it the night before like it says or the same day both turn out fine. It also reheats nicely the next day if you don't eat it all.
