Cranberry and apple baked oatmeal

I think breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. When the weekend rolls around, I love putting together something warm and inviting to help start the day off right.

My husband is taking a vacation week along with the kids so today didn't feel like Monday to me, it felt like Sunday again. I decided it was only right to whip up another weekend breakfast.

I love baked oatmeal! A few months back I made this baked oatmeal recipe. It was so delicious! I've had it in the back of my mind ever since.

I decided to change the ingredients list just a bit to make it more seasonal. The cranberries were a wonderful addition. I'm thinking I may actually prefer this recipe.

This would be wonderful to serve family or friends visiting for the holidays or as part of a Christmas brunch.

I like to pour a bit of warm milk or cream over the top. It's great either way really.

I wanted to show you my new apron! I have been trying to win over at The Apron Goddesses since last February and finally my number came up!! Yay! Isn't it just the cutest apron ever? I love it! It's a D-Lux 57 apron. It came wrapped up in the cutest little matching bag and included a pretty card with a hand written note and a coupon for my next purchase.

Darling apron and it suits you so well too! I have collected aprons for years now and have literally hundreds of them!

Although I love oatmeal, I've never tried baked oatmeal before. Hmmmmm....I'm thinking it would be good for my Christmas Morning Brunch!

Chef E said...

What a great looking dish, and the food is always good here too!

I admit I do not wear aprons since I seem to forget to pull it out, and then I have already made a mess...I will however go check them out...maybe I should have shopped there before amazon.com from my office!

Jenn said...

Never had oatmeal baked like this before. Mmm...

Lovely apron. I'm not much of an apron wearer, Though, relative of mine I did get me one made from Greece. Haven't used it yet.

You look so pretty and festive in your holiday apron. Love the holly frame around the photo.

Cranberries are so good - I'm going to buy extra and keep some in the freezer for future baking.

I would love a hot bowl of this delicious oatmeal right now.

TKW said...

Just when I swear that I hate oatmeal, you come up with a delicious sounding recipe for it.

LOVE the apron. Very Betty Draper, don'tcha think?

And love the apron. So many times in giveaways we never hear how it all shakes out...

Joanne said...

Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day as well, although I have never had baked oatmeal. Shame on me! The cranberries and apples sound delicious in it though. What an excellent combination.

You look adorable in your apron (you are absolutely gorgeous by the way!). So festive. Congrats on winning it!

Lisa said...

I really do love the idea of baked oatmeal. Cranberries sound like a fantastic addition. I have to try this!

Aren't aprons fun? I finally bought one in Ashland last summer. II can't believe how fun it is to wear.

HoneyB said...

Barbara Bakes said...

I need to try baked oatmeal. It looks like comfort food!

doggybloggy said...

I wear aprons but I go with a longer more bistro look usually in a solid color - I wonder how something like this would look on me? we made chocolate oatmeal as a snack last night I bet baking it off like this would be great!

5 Star Foodie said...

Adorable apron! And I love the baked oatmeal - an awesome breakfast!

Krista said...

Look at you...so cute in your holiday apron. I love it! I also love this baked oatmeal recipe. I've never seen one like this. It looks so good to me and I'm kind of "over" oatmeal recently. I'm going to have to give it a try!

Cinnamon-Girl Reeni♥ said...

The apron is so cute! I'm glad you won it - just in time for the holidays. What a delicious oatmeal! I love that it's baked - never had it this way - and the apples and cranberries - so perfect for this time of year.

Allyson said...

Ah yes well...you had me at chocolate gravy and then you lost me at oatmeal. But that's OK...I'm doing an Ungourmet Challenge...I'm doing 2 weeks worth of meals solely from your website. Well, after the insanity of the holidays. I cannot WAIT to serve my husband lasagna from the muffin tin.

Love, love, LOVE the apron!!

Sophie said...
