For many of us, the next few weeks will involve houseguests. A super simple and quick recipe can give you time to enjoy coffee with your guests instead of feeling like a short order cook. We love this baked oatmeal recipe from Kath Younger, RD, of KathEats. After sharing her meals with followers for 11 years, she says recipes like this time-saving one are some of her—and her readers’—favorites. “This baked oatmeal reheats beautifully and is simple enough to pop in the oven when you don’t want to spend the morning in the kitchen. The eggnog spices elevate it to company level!” says Kath. Baked oatmeal is perfect any morning for busy moms—Kath herself has two boys, a 6-year-old and a newborn. “With such a large age gap both of my children have very different needs; one wants to be held (or worn!) and requires me sitting to nurse him to eat and the other is hungry all the time for real food!” Tweak the spices and this baked oatmeal recipe will be a go-to all year long!
