This is definitely a special holiday recipe, and a perfect breakfast or snack option! Baked oatmeal is fun, easy to make, and so versatile. In my household we always have leftover cranberry sauce, probably because I make extra! With egg nog it is a must to have extra. So, to use up some of your leftovers, let’s whip up a batch of Baked Cranberry Sauce and Egg Nog Oatmeal!
After the holidays when egg nog is gone from the shelves, and cranberries are only found dried, you could easily alter the recipe and use milk instead of egg nog. Instead of cranberry sauce, you could use puréed fruit, and just add some nuts. So really, this recipe could be enjoyed all year long!
The recipe for the cranberry sauce comes from my Grandma. I call it Gram’s World Famous Cranberry Sauce…it is THAT good! Here is the recipe for her Cranberry Sauce, with a few other variations.
The recipe has been taste tested by my family, and definitely approved. We may just need to make more this week, thank goodness I bought five bags of cranberries last week. Here are a couple other recipes using cranberries: Pumpkin Pie and Cranberry Sauce Sweet Bread, Cranberry Apple Martini with Crystal Head Vodka.
