Brie Stuffed Apple Pecan Cranberry Baked Oatmeal

Brie. What a delightful cheese!

I had seen a skillet baked apple crisp with brie in the middle and was inspired to incorporate it into my breakfast oatmeal instead!   It was phenomenal.

I adapted my recipe from here.   Mine is below:


1/2 cup of old fashioned oats
1/2 tsp of vanilla
3/4 tsp of cinnamon
scant 1/4 tsp of salt
1 Tbsp of apple sauce
1/4 cup of mashed banana
1/4 cup of milk
1 Tbsp of butter
1/2 apple, chopped
Handful of pecans
1/4 cup of craisins (I "plumped mine in a bit of boiling water on the stovetop, but that's not absolutely necessary)
1/4 of a brie round


(I always assemble mine the night before, so it's ready to go in the morning)

Preheat oven to 375.
Mix everything except the cheese together in a bowl.
Grease a small baking dish with butter.  (If you want it to come out of the dish without sticking, I'd put a piece of parchment paper in the bottom first).
Put just enough of the oatmeal mixture in the dish to cover the bottom.
Place the brie in the middle.
Pack the rest of the oatmeal mixture around and top of the brie.
Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Run a knife around the edge, invert on to a plate and then flip right side up onto another plate.
Dig in!
