Baked Berry Oatmeal


This breakfast dish is a huge crowd pleaser and will leave your guests singing your praises until they leave. You can add just about any toppings you like on your traditional oatmeal and it turns out with little effort. And with a little cinnamon, it makes your kitchen smell yummy too. We like to make this over the weekend and the leftovers make a great reheat in the microwave for busy weekday mornings.
