We are pleased to introduce Food Comics from The Chopping Block where our resident Cartoonist Tom O'Brien illustrates his cooking adventures. In this edition, he shares a different way to make oatmeal.

Hey there Foodies! I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. I can't make oatmeal for the life of me! No idea why. Stovetop, microwave, with milk, without milk, exactly according to the package instructions or being coached step-by-step by an oatmeal expert, I just can't pull it off, and I never thought I would be able to. Until I found this recipe, that is. Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries and Banana Baked oatmeal! Who would have thought? It may take a little longer than stovetop oatmeal, but it's just as easy and delicious. Even I can pull it off. This recipe will make enough for four servings, but feel free to cut it in half. You'll need: 3 cups dry oatmeal 1.5 tsp baking powder 2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg 3/4 tsp salt 2.25 cups milk 3 eggs .5 cup syrup, maple preferred 2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste 2 to 3 large bananas, peeled and divided 2 cups fresh blueberries Start by putting your oven to 350. While it heats, mix the dry oatmeal with the baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl. Toss to combine. In a different bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, syrup, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients in with the dry and stir until well combined. Slice half of the banana into circles and dice the other half. Mix the diced banana and blueberries in with the oatmeal mixture, and then pour everything into a greased baking pan, roughly 9 x 13. Top the mixture with the banana circles. Into the oven it goes, for 35 to 40 minutes. The ideal is for the edges to have firmed up, but for the middle to still have a little jiggle to it. Let sit for around 5 minutes, scoop and serve as is or with extra syrup. Happy eating!
