Thoughts After Cooking:

So I thought this soup was pretty good, but not as good as some others I have made. The nice thing was that it was extremely easy to make.

So we had an Amish mystery on Tuesday, Blessings in Disguise, so we needed an Amish recipe. After searching on pinterest, I found Amish Baked Oatmeal from Cooking Classy

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Butter an 8×8 inch baking dish, set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs.
  4. Add in brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Whisk until there are no lumps.
  5. Stir in milk and melted butter.
  6. Add oats and mix well.
  7. Pour into prepared baking dish and spread evenly. (At this point you can refridgerate overnight or bake immediately.)
