My 3 Monsters: Bless You, Amish People

Bless You, Amish People

My youngest brother once said, "If I weren't Mormon, I almost definitely would . . . not . . . be Amish. But they make some pretty good food." True, bro. True. I'm sure many of you have tried Amish Friendship Bread. The starter makes it's way around my group of acquaintances every couple of years. It's delicious. My sister gave me a starter this summer which I promptly left atop the toaster oven and killed. Boo. My sister also introduced us to Amish Baked Oatmeal. It's a lovely dish that tastes much like half-baked oatmeal cookies. We smother it in sliced fresh peaches and warm milk and it's positively heavenly. You should try it.

Amish Baked Oatmeal

3 C. oatmeal
1 C. sugar
1 C. milk
1/2 C. melted butter
2 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
warm milk
fresh fruit (optional)
brown sugar (optional)

Combine first 8 ingredients and mix well. Spread evenly in a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350* for 25-30 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Immediately spoon into bowls and add warm milk. Top with fresh fruit and/or brown sugar if desired. (Oh, you will desire!)

You may think you don't like oatmeal, but think again. You don't know nothin' until you've tasted this.

  1. I was sent to the store to buy oatmeal for this, so it had better be good. :)

  2. When we first moved to this small town, my sister in law gave me a starter. Now I have to tell you, I had not a clue what a "starter" was and promptly killed it too! I know better now...such yummy, yummy bread! I haven't tried the oatmeal yet...sounds delicious!

  3. No seriously, I REALLY wouln't ever be amish!

  4. We had it this morning. Ummmm, yum. That's all I gotta say. Well, that and this will be a winter staple around here. Thanks for sharing.
