I was asked to share some of my recipes. I created these recipes so that my hubby, who leaves too early to sit down for breakfast, could take his breakfast with him. He loves the oatmeal but not the grits. My children love them both and so do I. So here we go…
Baked Oatmeal: Serves 6-8
9×13 rectangular baked pan
1 1/2 – 2 c. uncooked oats (not instant)
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 t.spoon nutmeg
2 Tb. spoons cinnamon
1 c. raisins
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 large eggs
2 c. milk
(I use powdered milk)
Fill the baking dish halfway with oats
Add all dry ingredients and mix well
Add eggs, oil and then mix
Begin adding milk until the mixture is slightly smoother than cookie dough but not soupy
Bake in 350 degree oven for 40 min. or until golden brown and firm
Cut into squares
Recipe can be eaten warm or cold and can be frozen as a freezer meal for breakfast or snack.
Grits & Cheese Casserole: Serves 6
6 servings of cooked grits
1 c. sharp shredded cheese
1/2 c. melted butter or margarine
1 c. milk
4 large eggs beaten
1/4 tsp ground red pepper (optional)
salt & pepper to taste
Add 1 cup of melted butter to grits and stir
Add 1/2 cup of cheese and beaten egg. Mix well.
Add milk, salt, pepper and ground red pepper. Mix well.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until golden brown.
Let sit 10 min. before serving.
Note: Variations would be to add 1 lb. of cooked drained sausage, some jalapeno peppers or crumbled bacon.
