Trader Joe's Tuesday: Michigan Baked Oatmeal

Since I am obsessed with Trader Joe's and the products they sell I decided why not have some fun with it? I'm going to start Trader Joe's Tuesdays where I will be featuring recipes made with some of my favorite Trader Joe's products. And no I'm not being paid for this advertisement, but of course I wouldn't turn free money down if they did want to pay me. *wink*wink*

Today I'm featuring their Quick Cook Steel Cut Oats, which come in a normal size oat container perfect for a family of 2. I used the quick oats to make Michigan Baked Oatmeal, which turned out delicious!
The thing I love about this recipe is that there are so many other ingredients you could add. Several recipes recommended adding dried cherries and sliced almonds (also sold at Trader Joe's), which I will be trying next! Drew and I talked about making a batch of this on Sunday nights so that we can have it for breakfast all week during the work week. Re-heat and go and you have a healthy and nutritious breakfast that even someone recovering from oral surgery can eat!

I am drooling. Your photos and that recipe is making me hungry (even though I just ate lunch haha)

I tried something similar a few months ago. I didn't post it on my blog, but it did have cinnamon, apples and oatmeal. It was so good. My sons enjoyed it.
