Cherry Oatmeal

Baked oatmeal is the perfect make ahead breakfast. It’s good straight out of the oven but it’s even better the next day. You can use any kind of fruit and nuts, but I like using cherries this time of year. It’s a little unexpected surprise and a break from the apples and pumpkin that seems to be in just about all the holiday baked treats.
