Winter Breakfast---Baked Oatmeal

If you don't have bran just skip it and if you don't have steel-cut oats, (they are tasty) just add 1/4 reg oats.

2 1/2 c. regular rolled oats
1/4 c. oat bran
1/4 c. steel-cut oats
2 t. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups milk
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup applesauce
1/4 c. cooking oil
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
2 cups fresh or dried fruit, chopped (strawberries, blueberries, apples, peaches, bananas, raisins, craisins, whatever)

In large bowl stir together rolled oats through cinnamon; set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together milk through sugars. Add to oat mixture, stirring until combined. Turn into lightly greased casserole pan or souffle dish.
Bake uncovered, for 20 at 400. Stir mixture. Gently fold in fruit (or don't do fruit at all). Bake for 15 more minutes or until top is lightly browned.
Serve warm with yogurt, milk, or cream. (l love it with cream!)

Mmmm. This sounds tasty. We eat a lot of steel cut oats here. At least the grown ups in the house do! This looks like a fun way to mix it up a little.

This is making my mouth water. Sounds good, but never heard of steel cut oats. Where do you get them?

I love baked oatmeal! Can't wait to try this one out. I am with Kristin, though. What are steel cut oats?

I have no idea what they are, but I found them in the oatmeal department at the grocery store. They were in a cylinder container. It kind of looks like large bran meal. I think they are healthier than regular oatmeal but they are also more expensive.
