With the kids back in school, 9 On Your Side Anchor Tanya O'Rourke shared one of her kids' favorite breakfasts: baked oatmeal. She says, "before you diss it, give it a try."

O'Rourke's kids love it hot served with berries and cold milk poured over or cold as an oatmeal bar snack. 

What the video above for directions and check out the recipe below.

3 cups uncooked oats (instant is fine)
1 1/2 cups milk
1 stick unsalted butter
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract (truth be told, I was out when we shot this. I used maple extract and it was Soooooooo good!)

Pour into a prepared 13-by-9-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until center is set.
