I used to make this once per week and eat a piece every morning with milk or cream poured over. I added raisins to the recipe and I suppose fruit could be added with some experimentation.

Baked Oatmeal

3 cups rolled wheat or rolled oats or rolled 9-grain
3/4 cup of sugar or honey or molasses or evaporated cane sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon or vanilla, etc.
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk or soy beverage or Almond milk
2 tbsp. butter or olive oil or coconut oil
2 eggs, beaten

Bake at 350 degrees for 40--45 minutes. Cut like a cake and serve with milk on it.

I had to compromise a bit. I had one medium white onion and a small can of chicken broth. I asked google about the broth and it said they used it in Paris so I forged ahead. I sliced the onion and sauted in butter until caramelized then added broth and seasoning. Also no dry sherry so a little cabernet sauvignon. It's now simmering but a taste test proved right tasty.

Thanks to your precious lady for the onion soup recipe. I was looking for canned onion soup in the market and am I ever so glad that I didn't find any. The recipe is easily adaptable and quite delicious.
