Creme Brulee Baked Oatmeal

Creme Brûlée Baked Oatmeal | The Housewife in Training Files

Hi guys! Megan from The Housewife in Training Files, and I’m so excited to be back to share another favorite recipe of mine! If you have hopped on over to my blog and checked out a few of my recipes, it will be no secret that I adore desserts. I have a sweet tooth the size of Texas (and luckily don’t have a butt to match…). The typical piece of chocolate, or a soft chewy chocolate chip cookie or delicate vanilla cake, I can pass on without blinking an eye, but mostly ice cream wins my heart. Hands down. I always ask my fiance around the holidays to find a way to overflow my stocking with ice cream rather than a dark chocolate Santa Claus. That has disaster written all over it. I can still dream though.

Do you have a special dessert that is close to your heart? Beyond your favorite that you lose all control with?

I have a few that immediately take me back to the age of when pigtails were acceptable and my mother still dressed me. It was the one that my Mother immediately got all giddy over as soon as she spotted it on the dessert menu. Creme Brulee. The intense vanilla bean speckled custard all cuddled up underneath the favorited blanket of caramelized sugar. Isn’t it known that the crunchy, sweet caramelized sugar is the best part? It is a dessert that will always make me think of her and the ‘special dinners’ that meant we could order dessert. Those were always my favorite family nights.

But in my mind, creme brulee is thee ‘classy dessert’; sweet, simple yet sophisticated. All words that remind me of my mother.

Over the past month, my parents have been off partying vacationing in Arizona with a good set of friends. Not jealous or anything. It’s fine, I will just freeze my lil bum off here in KC.

But, over that month, it is always difficult as I am use to talking and seeing my Mom quite a few times a week. We have a close friendship. I am lucky to say she is one of my best friends. I only hope my future daughter and I will have the same relationship! But during that month, I thought to make a breakfast that comforted me.

Creme Brulee + Oatmeal.

Yes, you read that right. But this treat will have your waistline thanking you.

Oatmeal mixed with milk, greek yogurt, eggs, cinnamon, touch of sweetener, bake off beautifully to make a oatmeal style custard cake. In the last few minutes of baking, you flip on the broiler, sprinkle cane sugar (or brown sugar) and let the caramelization begin. If this treat couldn’t get any sweeter, drizzle with a touch of maple syrup, extra pour of milk and fresh, juicy strawberries.

  1. MMM! This oatmeal looks so tasty. I have a huge problem with dessert, mainly that I eat it all. I love ice cream too, it’s pretty much an every night routine for me! Thanks for sharing Megan 🙂

  2. Hi Megan – do you know if it’s possible to mix this up the night before and then just take out of the fridge and bake in the oven the next morning? Thanks!
