I don't think this recipe has been posted before -- at least I didn't find it. It is a very good baked oatmeal recipe (had it this morning!) published last January in The Sacramento Bee. They identified Quaker Oats as the source.
Oatmeal Creme Brulee
2 cups quick oats, or 2 1/4 cups old-fashioned oats, uncooked
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 1/3 cups nonfat milk [soymilk works well, too]
2 eggs, or 1/3 cup egg substitute, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8-inch-square glass baking dish with cooking spray.
In large bowl, combine oats, granulated sugar and salt.
In medium bowl, combine milk, eggs and vanilla; mix well. Add to oat mixture; mix well. Pour into baking dish. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until center jiggles slightly. Removed from oven to cooling rack.
Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over top of oatmeal. Using back of spoon, gently spread sugar into a thin layer across entire surface of oatmeal. Return to oven; bake just until sugar melts, about 2 to 3 minutes. Set oven to broil. Broil 3 inches from heat until sugar bubbles and browns slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. (Watch carefully to prevent burning. It may be necessary to turn baking dish.) Spoon into bowls to serve.
(Note: halves very well. When I do this, I use a 1-quart Corningware casserole, and check at 30 minutes, usually cooking 35 minutes.)
Mmmm, that sounds good. I copied it off! Thanks.
