Recently, I have been making TOO MUCH oatmeal in the morning! I don't know if they just had a growth spurt and it is slowing down, or if the change in weather has affected them... but we have had leftover oatmeal in our fridge! So this evening, while doing the dishes, I came up with the brilliant plan to make "Mommy's Leftover Surprise" Breakfast casserole.
Aaaaannnnd, you're about to see how and why my recipes don't always turn out so great at first. :-) I would usually test them a bunch of times before sharing them with you, but since this is a special occasion-- I've never made leftover breakfast casserole before-- I thought I would just share it and tell you the results tomorrow! (Or, maybe sometime next week-- I'm going to the women's retreat at my church this weekend! Yay!)
I started out with:
- 1.5 cups cooked peach oatmeal
- 3/4 cup soaked raw oats
- 1/2 cup rye flour
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup sugar (I use sucanat)
- 1.5 tsp baking powder
- 2-3 TBS yogurt
- 1-2 TBS chia seeds (I have been adding these to everything lately!)
- enough water to make it 'batter-like'
- frozen peaches on top
- cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top
Will this be as brilliant as I had hoped? A giant FAIL? Should I just use the oatmeal to make pancakes? .....
You'll just have to keep wondering! :-) Have a great weekend!
