Baked Oatmeal

I love this baked oatmeal.  Well, I've only made it twice; the first time was about 6 years ago, and I thought, "Wow, I'll be making that all the time!"  And then.... 6 years later..... here we are.  Lol.  But maybe from now ON, I will be making this all the time.  Next time I make it, I want to try to use half applesauce for the butter, because I really need less buttah in my life. 

This will make your house smell amazing, and it tastes pretty good too.  :)  I enjoy it with a bit of milk.  Use old-fashioned oats.  I cut this recipe in half the last time I made it, but wished I had made the whole thing.  The whole recipe does make a lot though; a 9x13 pan.
