Baked Oatmeal is one of my all-time favourite easy breakfast treats., It’s a one dish meal that is quick enough to make for a weekday meal yet nice enough to serve at a weekend brunch. I’ve made many different flavour combinations including Summer Berry Baked Oatmeal and Apple Cranberry Baked Oatmeal. It usually depends on fresh or frozen fruit we have on hand to use up. This morning I looked in the fridge and saw a big basket of fresh Ontario peaches that I just knew would be perfect in baked oatmeal.
The peaches are among the great leftovers from the Corn Roast Housewarming this weekend. My friend Ashley picked up a basket to make her cute peach cinnamon crescent rolls and left us the rest of the basket. They’re so good this time of year and we’ve been eating them like crazy. I want to slice up some of what we have left to freeze and enjoy in the winter months, but at the rate we’re going through them I’ll probably need to pick up another basket.
I put this dish together in five minutes, popped it in the oven and was able to let the dogs out, shower, make the bed and pack my lunch while it baked. Then I enjoyed a big bowl of fresh-out-of-the-oven Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal with a big splash of cream, hanging out on the porch while the dogs ran around the yard. Doesn’t get much better than that for a Wednesday morning! There were plenty of leftovers, so I packed up some in containers for breakfasts-on-the-go for the rest of the week (just zap them in the microwave at work with a splash of milk) and I still had enough to drop off at my parents’ house as a surprise for my family. It’s not every day you get a hot breakfast delivered!

Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to make this up, then bake it in smaller ramekins to make portioned out sizes to take on the go. Have you done this before? Thanks!
I’ve never thought about baking it in smaller dishes before, but I do sometimes take the leftovers and portion them out in smaller dishes for us to take as a breakfast on-the-go. I reheat mine with a bit of milk and it tastes great!
This looks fantastic! I can’t wait to make some up. I like to bake mine in the giant muffin tins and freeze them once they’re cooled. I usually get about 6 1cup portions out of a batch.
