Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

The inspiration for this yummy, warm, Monday morning breakfast came from a combination of 2 things: a lone can of pumpkin I found in my pantry and a late night pin fest on Pinterest. As always, I cook for an army so feel free to adjust this recipe as needed. The kids are eating it right now and have already asked for seconds! Perfect for a chilly, winter morning. Here is what you will need:

*Pre-heat oven to 350 and grease a 9 inch pan
*In a medium sized bowl combine: 1 can pumpkin, 1/2c brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1/2tsp vanilla, 1tsp cinnamon, 1/2tsp salt, and 3/4tsp baking powder.
*Mix until smooth

*Stir in 1.5c milk and 2.5c oats
*Pour into your  greased pan and cover with foil
*Bake 30 minutes, remove foil, and bake for 15 more minutes
*Serve right out of the oven
*We had ours with hot chocolate. Yum! A good breakfast indeed!
