A Breakfast that Serves a Crowd

Whenever my family gets together for the holidays (or any time of year!) we love cooking together. I’m usually in charge of breakfast because I’m always the first one up.

You know what they say, the early bird catches the worm…or makes breakfast for the whole family! I’ve been making breakfast for my family since I was about 5 years old. I was the first one awake back then, too.

A meal to share is always my go-to for family breakfast affairs. If I can mix a whole bunch of things together, put it in a casserole dish, and into the oven, then I’m a happy camper. This baked oatmeal hits all of these things on the head!
