Skillet Baked Oatmeal
A twist on baked oatmeal, this skillet oatmeal takes 30 minutes and can be eaten directly from the hot skillet. The mix of oats, eggs, berries, chocolate and peanut butter makes for one delicious breakfast.
Sometimes I like my breakfast a little savory. Sometimes I like my breakfast a little sweet. Depends on the day….and the food I ate the day before. It also depends on what kind of night I had the night before. Does anyone know what I mean here? Usually when I am just relaxing on the couch having a quiet night in, I wake up craving something sweet for breakfast. Ya know, oatmeal, pancakes, french toast. Pretty much anything I can put maple syrup on. I also like sweet things on Sunday’s. Why? I don’t really know.
Now Saturday’s on the other hand, I am always craving something savory. Toast. Eggs. Avocado. Veggies. All of the above mixed together. I also like a savory breakfast if I had a few too many cocktails the night before. Something about the toast and egg mixture makes me feel a little bit better, ya know? Another thing that changes what I have for breakfast? How much time I have. Because on weekdays, it’s only about enough time to microwave oats with a few blueberries thrown in.
On a nice slow weekend though, lets all share these skillet baked oats. Literally, we can share them by sticking all our forks in and eating right out of the skillet. Or we could be more civil and cut slices, but where’s the fun in that? This baked oatmeal also easily slides right out of the skillet and into a tupperware container to save and eat for the rest of the week. Baked oatmeal every day!!
