Autumn Baked Oatmeal
We often see baked oatmeal with spring and summer fruits like blueberries, but there is no reason you couldn’t give this make-ahead staple an autumn-inspired twist. Check out this Amish-Style Baked Oatmeal recipe from Once Upon a Chef. It calls for fall favorites like oats, apples, walnuts and raisins baked in a creamy custard. Similar to bread pudding, this Baked Oatmeal can be put together and baked the night before, and reheated in your microwave cabinet the next morning.
Baked French Toast
No need to stand over the stove to make fabulous French Toast. We love this Baked Fench Toast recipe from Food Network’s Ree Drummond. Start by greasing a baking pan with butter. Then, whip up a few simple ingredients from your kitchen pantry cabinet, pour it over crusty bread, and store in the refrigerator overnight. You can even make the crumb topping ahead of time to sprinkle on in the morning before you bake. It takes about an hour, so pop your casserole in the oven as soon as you wake up, before heading to the bathroom vanity for your morning routine.
Perfect for holiday mornings or any day at all, these make-ahead hot breakfasts help start your day on a sweet note. Have a happy and delicious fall season!
