Can you tell I’m just a tad obsessed with strawberries? I have been going a little crazy. Not only are they juicy and scrumptious, they are also cheaper this time of year since there is such an abundance of them! This makes me happy. Berries are not cheap.
Smoothies, pies and breakfast bowls have been highlighting this delightful little fruit, but my favorite way to incorporate them thus far is this strawberries and cream baked oatmeal.
Have I ever told you guys how obsessed I am with baked oatmeal? I mean this recipe from last fall was one of my favorites. I made it a multitude of times over the winter. It was time to “spring-up” this favorite of mine, and so I did…berries and cream style.
Regular old oatmeal I’m very hit or miss with. As I’ve discovered recently, I love it breakfast bowl-style: with a bunch of crunchy and delicious toppings. When it’s all by itself? I don’t love it so much. Baked oatmeal on the other hand is a different story. Baking it off in the oven adds some much needed crunch to a classic dish and satisfies each and every time.
If you’re feeling spunky, pair this strawberries and cream baked oatmeal with a porter (I like porters of the chocolate variety) ;). Have a wonderful week friends! Don’t let this stupid Monday get you down! xo
