FRUIT ON THE BOTTOM BRULEED OATMEAL
We love baked oatmeal and I make it quite often. My Easy Baked Oatmeal Cups are a favorite around here. I wanted to jazz it up a bit and Bruleed Oatmeal with fruit on the bottom sounded perfect. This is a great idea for a weekend breakfast when you want something nutritious yet sweet. Fruit filling is topped with cooked oatmeal and sugar topping then popped under the broiler for a few minutes. The result: delicious oatmeal that is bound to become a favorite!
HOW TO MAKE FRUIT ON THE BOTTOM OATMEAL?
- Cook oatmeal with sugar and vanilla.
- Toss some fresh or frozen fruit (previously thawed) in a little bit of sugar and place on the bottom of your cocotte or ramekin.
- Top it with cooked oatmeal and sprinkle with a mix of granulated or brown sugar.
- Pop in the oven under the broiler for few minutes until the top caramelizes and you’re done!
Easy and quite fast weekend breakfast idea.
