I’ve never, ever, ever been a pancake-and-waffle kind of person (unless we’re talking about my banana-oat waffles…). When it came to my brunch option of choice, I would always pick french toast. My mom would make it using English muffin bread, which gave it such an interesting taste. It’s hard for me to fathom using French bread or other fancy breads to make French toast because I’m so fond of the English muffin version (try it sometime!).
French Toast Oatmeal is actually one of the first recipes I made on my own after I gave up the Quaker instant packets. I made it on the stove, and it matched the flavor so perfectly that it made me fall in love with making my own oatmeal. If I’m not mistaken, it was the first “homemade oatmeal” I ever made that I didn’t hate. 🙂
This version, though, is baked (stovetop version coming soon!). And, because I hate preparing oatmeal that contains no produce, I also made a green monster oatmeal. Feel free to skip that part if it’s not your thing! I will admit, green monster baked oatmeal is significantly less attractive than its stove-top cousin.
