Making this was a triumph in frugal (for me) cooking! Stranded at the end of a pay period with $29 for two weeks of living, I had to give up my lofty preferences and just use and eat what I had on hand, with no room for error or extravagance.
Last week I made pre-assembled oatmeal packets (like the kind you buy in the store except you make them!). Somewhere along the line I also found a recipe for Apple "Pie" Oatmeal from Love Big Bake Often.
How could you not make this?
I will definitely make this again. I think it is also the basis for a very easy dessert - saute apples with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar...serve with good vanilla ice cream. A lazy apple pie?
