Breakfast is Possible
With more and more people of all ages working or heading back too work, breakfast has become a ‘meal’ that is eaten on the run. A meal that is eaten in the car, I should say. A granola bar, banana or a quick stop to pick up a ‘breakfast sandwich’ are all okay options but they really don’t keep you “full” until lunchtime. This recipe makes a 2-quart size baking dish, which is a lot of oatmeal. If you make this oatmeal, let’s say on a Sunday night, you have delicious Amish Style Oatmeal for breakfast for the next couple of mornings.
