This dish has become a Christmas
morning tradition for us, and makes
a delightfully warm breakfast on any
cold, winter day. Although we have
never baked it in the crockpot, it
seems well-suited, and would be a
perfect wake up call.
3 c. water
3/4 tsp. salt
1 2/3 c. oatmeal
1/2 c. maple syrup
1/4 c. sorghum
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. pecans or walnuts, chopped
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 c. apples, peeled and
3/4 c. dried cranberries or raisins
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Bring water and salt to boil.
Reduce heat to medium low and
add oats. Cook for 5 minutes.
Transfer to oven proof soufflé
type dish ((or crockpot). Add
remaining ingredients, stirring
well. Bake for 1 hour in preheated
350F oven (or in crockpot on low,
8-10 hours). May be prepared up
to baking the night before.
Serve with milk or cream.
