This is the second time I have made baked oatmeal for company, and it was really a nice change of pace from typical breakfast food. The first time I made a peanut butter baked oatmeal, which was good, but this time I was in the mood for something fruity. I came across this recipe at All Recipes, and everyone really liked it!

My hubby likes to pour milk over dishes like this, but I thought this cinnamon cream would be yummy to try on it; it is from Taste of Homes 2003 Quick Cooking Annual Recipes.
Cinnamon Cream
  • 2 cups cool whip
  • 1/4 c brown sugar, packed
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
Mix well, and then put a generous dollop on top of your oatmeal. Let me tell you, it is decadent!

(If your sugar crystals don’t dissolve right away, refrigerate the cinnamon cream for a little while).
