Baked Blueberry Oatmeal with Scrambled Eggs

We used to make baked oatmeal for breakfast all the time when we lived in the Dominican Republic!  There are so many great ways to make baked oatmeal.  I thought I’d share my basic recipe, and you can mix in whatever you prefer…blueberries, strawberries, diced apples, dried cranberries, raisins…whatever!

I made this in a 9×13 baking dish so that we would have leftovers for breakfast! You could half the baked oatmeal portion of the recipe and bake in an 8×8 baking dish.

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – 30 minutes


  • 2 eggs ($.16)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce ($.20)
  • 3/4 cup sugar ($.15)
  • 1 cup milk ($.10)
  • 3 cups of quick cooking oats ($1)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder ($.05)
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar ($.05)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon ($.05)
  • 2 cup fresh blueberries ($2)
  • Vanilla or plain yogurt, or cream, or milk ($.50)
  • 8 eggs ($.64) On sale $.89 a dozen!!!
  • 1/2 cup milk ($.05) On sale for $.75 a half gallon!!!
  • Salt/pepper


  • In large mixing bowl, whisk 2 eggs, applesauce, sugar and milk. Once creamy, add oats, salt and baking powder and mix through. (If you wish to add in any fruits, add about 1 cup into the batter at this point.) **Gluten free: Use certified GF oats. They are more expensive, but this dish would be worth it!
  • Pour batter into greased 9×13 baking dish. Sprinkle top with brown sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Don’t wait too long, as you want to serve it warm! Top with your preferred topping: vanilla or plain yogurt, or cream, or milk.
  • Just before taking the baked oatmeal out of the oven, whisk together 8 eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Add to skillet over medium-high heat. Scramble to your likeness.
  • Serve warm Baked Oatmeal with Scrambled Eggs.

To Freeze: Let the oatmeal cool completely, cut into single serving sizes (I usually do squares), and freeze individual portions in plastic baggies.

To Thaw: Drop the frozen oatmeal square into a bowl, and defrost it in the microwave for a minute, then warm it at regular temp for a minute, then add milk or yogurt and any other toppings and gobble it up!
