This recipe makes a huge casserole dish of baked oatmeal that is enough for 12 generous servings.  Those Amish families are big, you know 😉 If you’d like, you can half the ingredients and bake it in an 8×8 dish to make 6 servings.  However, I always make the big portion because in our house this Amish baked oatmeal casserole disappears in 2 days!

You can also freeze this baked oatmeal – just put each square individually into a small ziploc bag, squeeze out the air and freeze.  Then take out as many squares as you need and defrost in a refrigerator overnight – they’ll be as good as new 🙂  Baked oatmeal square in a ziploc bag also makes an awesome treat to pack in a lunchbox!

      I’ve never tried it with regular oats. I think regular ones might turn out too chewy. If you try it with regular oats, I would increase the amount of milk by 1 cup and increase the cooking time by 15 minutes. If you try it with regular oats, please let me know how it turned out 🙂
