Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal Recipe


I tend to forget just how much I love oatmeal.  My brother eats it every morning and I often think, "I should eat more oatmeal..."  Yet, I usually just stick with my morning eggs.
I think I held onto this recipe for a long time before making it.  I don't know what took me so long, it was so good.  Really, really good.


The pecans made it seem almost pie like and just decadant.  I loved the taste, loved the texture and I totally need to make it again.
