Baked oatmeal is a great breakfast or brunch option.  This recipe results in soft berry filled oatmeal with a swirl of cheesecake style filling.  It is delicious and loaded with the good stuff. 

One of the best parts is how great baked oatmeal reheats. Make a batch on the weekend and enjoy a bit each morning throughout the week.

My life is complete, there is now a great excuse to have cheesecake for breakfast!  Little Dude and I have been having so much fun playing with oatmeal recipes.

There are just so many delicious ways to change it up and we both love eating the results.  Rather than a dense baked oatmeal, we have been on a big almost fluffy baked oatmeal.

There are so many different flavor combinations to try. But trust me, stir in some berries and a cheesecake swirl and you are in breakfast heaven.

We try to keep the sugar content down, so we can have our breakfast treat without to much guilt.  In this version we used strawberry preserves instead of maple syrup or honey, which are some of our favorite oatmeal sweeteners.

The preserves helped boost the strawberry flavor and added to a little bit of pink. Between the jam and the berries themselves, it is hard to get a bite without big berry taste.

The berries in the oatmeal were frozen from our strawberry patch.  They were smaller berries from the end of the season, so I just defrosted them and added all of the bright red juice to the oatmeal mixture.

I dotted the whole berries on the top of the oatmeal rather than stirring them in.  If using slices, go ahead and fold them into the oatmeal before you put it in the pan.

One of my favorite things about baked oatmeal is it is so versatile.  It is great hot, wonderful at room temperature and delicious cold.

The cheesecake swirl will be a little bit gooeyer and soft when served warm.  It will have more of a cheesecake texture when cooled down.

If you are like us, you won’t be able to wait for it to cool.  Don’t worry, it is perfect either way!

While it doesn’t need it, a little strawberry syrup on top takes this breakfast to the next level.  I just cooked down some additional berries in a little maple syrup.

Once the berries were soft, mash or puree a few of them.  It is perfect spooned over the top of a slice of baked oatmeal.

Of course you may fall in love and want to spoon it over pancakes, waffles, panna cotta or a million other things as well.
