Baked Oatmeal Custard

Isn’t this a beautiful breakfast?   We love oats in all forms, from baked goods to granola to hot cereal, but this baked oatmeal custard is a new favorite on the breakfast table, and what’s more — it has great nutritional stats (the version with protein powder has protein from eggs, cottage cheese and whey).   Best of all, it keeps well and may be quickly reheated in the microwave for a weekday warm morning meal. This will come in handy now that the Autumn mornings are cooler.  

The recipe was adapted by Jules of Jules Food, from Inn Cuisine.  Jules’ version uses cooked Arrowhead Mills Hot Cereal, while the original uses just cooked oats.  We are using King Arthur Flour’s prepared Pompanoosuc Porridge, which includes Steel Cut Oats, Flax Seeds and Whole Wheat Bulgur.  Don’t use uncooked or instant or quick oats for either version.  We’ve published both versions, with beautiful photography by Jules.

Notes
For those who prefer their oatmeal a bit sweeter or made with cinnamon, garnish with an equal blend of cinnamon & sugar before serving—it adds a nice touch. Note – Since oven accuracy can vary, we suggest checking this dish at about 45 minutes and re-checking every 5-10 minutes thereafter until edges are golden and center is set.
