Peaches and Cream Oatmeal

IMG_9765Hey there– My mom can make a sensational peach cobbler–  you now the kind, with those tender-on-the-inside and crunchy-on-the-outside little biscuits floating on top of the spiced peaches.  When I was growing up, when we’d have this for dessert, and the next morning my dad would scoop up a big bowl of it.  He’s remark, “Without the ice cream on top, it’s breakfast!!”   (and, of course, we’d all join in)

Well, here’s my current peachy breakfast (without ice cream!).  It’s in the oven right now.  We have have 7 of our kids/grand-girls soundly sleeping in the house and when they’re up, it will be a peachy breakfast together!

3 plump ripe peaches peeled, pitted & cut into little chunks
2 1/3 cups old fashioned oats
4 cups cream (or whole milk)*
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 rounded tsp. of cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt

Mix together all the ingredients and pour them into a 9″x13″ pan that’s been sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake it all up in a 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes.  Serve it up hot with lots of add ons to sprinkle on top—

Here’s some suggestions of things to top off your bowl of peach oatmeal–
a splash more of milk
brown sugar
dried cranberries
black berries raisins
(and if you have 3 grand-girls in your house) sprinkles!

Enjoy it on a sunny summer morning with a table full of family– or all alone with a good book.

*You can use cream, milk, half & half…  I’ve used nonfat milk when that’s what we had on hand.

  1. I’ll try it! I just made your blueberry cobbler last night (LOVE those buttermilk biscuits!) and we finished it up for breakfast – minus the ice cream!
