We were recently asked at The Good Cooking Store to name some typical Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, foods. Or course, with the recent controversy, we thought of Whoopie Pies (though Maine residents might contest that!), as well as Shoofly Pie.
But there’s also Baked Oatmeal. Yes, we just featured Peach Baked Oatmeal a few weeks ago, but it’s such a beloved dish here in Lancaster County that we couldn’t help sharing another recipe with you.
A Good Cooking Store staff member from Ohio didn’t know about this wonderful dish until her college roommate made it for her a few years ago. It turns out that we have this roommate’s mom’s recipe for Baked Oatmeal in our Fix-It and Enjoy-It Healthy Cookbook. And we just pieced all of this together one day recently. One of those sweet little connections that life brings to us now and then!
