Breakfast Oatmeal Bake

One of the world's greatest warm, satisfying breakfasts!  It's very convenient: you make one batch and then you have breakfast for the week.  It is a balanced breakfast of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats.  And best of all, this recipe can be modified in lots of different ways to suit your tastes and the ingredients you have.
