Baked Oatmeal with Fruit and Nuts

As wine pairs with cheese, winter finds its morning complement in this baked oatmeal recipe. Before you head out for a day in the snow, get powered up with a breakfast that is guaranteed to keep you charging in the cold.

More than just a bowl of oatmeal, it bakes up almost to a cake-like sponge. This nestles the fruit and nut additions just so for a delightful texture.

You can put this dish together the night before and pull it out in the morning to bake. Still, we like to make it all the same morning so the oats and nuts stay more firm.

Let us know what you try!
