Sometimes with cooking I can get stuck in a bit of a rut. I excitedly try out a few new things and inevitably fall back into the same few standbys. I want to get out of that habit and force myself to try something new. I am going to make 60 new to me dishes and hopefully find myself a whole new list of favourite foods.
Day 3: Apple raisin breakfast casserole
Breakfast is always said to be the most important meal of the day, and yet it is the one meal I generally forget. Why? I’m not exactly a morning person, but I am determined to make more of an effort. I also have been wanting to incorporate more oats into my diet so I came up with this. It turned out to be a bit like an apple crisp, but it was still delicious at breakfast time.
3 apples, sliced (I used Granny Smiths)
1 cup raisins
2 cups rolled oats
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 cups milk (I used almond milk for this recipe)
1/4 cup corn syrup
Line your baking dish with the apple slices, I had enough for about 3 layers of apple. Then top with 3/4 cup of the raisins.
In a medium bowl combine the oats, cinnamon, baking powder, brown sugar, and the rest of the raisins. Then put all of the oat mixture on top of the apples.
In another bowl, combine the egg, milk and corn syrup, and drizzle that mixture on top of the oats.
Bake at 375F for 40 minutes
