Baked Peach Oatmeal

This was a contribution to a ladies' brunch. It turned out very good, but I was running behind and forgot to take a picture of the end product before I ran out to the car to leave for the event.

5 large peaches

1 stick butter, melted

4 cups rolled oats (old fashioned oats)

4 large eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

3/4 C brown sugar

~ 1 tsp vanilla

~ 1 tsp cinnamon

~ 1 Tbsp fresh ginger

some fresh nutmeg

Cinnamon Sugar topping (optional)

I baked this in my Le Creuset casserole. It's great for potlucks because it easily keeps the contents warm for a thirty minute drive and the time on the buffet line. If you aren't taking it to an event, a 13 x 9 dish would work fine.

Preheat oven to 350. Peel and roughly chop the peaches. Throw them into your casserole dish. Add a splash of vanilla, a teaspoon of cinnamon, a grating of nutmeg and some ginger. I used fresh ginger. (I keep it in my freezer, unwrapped, and it lasts for months.)

Melt the butter (I did so in the microwave). Stir in milk, and then eggs. Stir in oatmeal, and then combine this mixture with the peaches. I then sprinkled a Pampered Chef cinnamon sugar sprinkle on top. Bake for about 30 minutes.

Don't you just hate it when that happens? Sounds good though, I love baked oatmeals.
