A make-ahead breakfast? Sounds like a winner to me! The only hindrance to making this dish was that for nearly two weeks, I kept forgetting to pull together the very easy “night before” part. LOL. Other than that, it is a cinch to make and very good. Oh, and my kids loved it. That’s always a HUGE plus for me.
This recipe was adapted from my friend Jennifer. In my original trial I used Greek yogurt, but I think in this dish, the Greek yogurt is too thick, making the oatmeal dry. Next time, I will choose regular yogurt. Plus, in my adaptation, I’m adding a little milk to lighten it a bit.
This sweet, warm, and “crispy on the outside” dish is perfect for a Christmas morning, a brunch potluck, a birthday morning, in anticipation of the first snow–any time you want to turn an everyday morning into a special occasion. Serve with bacon and some fresh fruit (whatever is in season), and don’t forget a cup of joe!

1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 stick melted butter
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt or kefir
In the morning…in separate bowl combine.

2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Add into oat mixture. Then pour into greased glass baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until it looks a little browned around the edges.
