This Baked Blueberry Oatmeal is everything delicious and cheery and full of springtime sass with a side of oh-summer-you're-almost-here longing!! It's perfect for any breakfast or brunch gathering, small or large. Casual or oh so fancy! 'Round your dining room table with the kiddos still in their jammies (you too, of course! It's Saturday!). Or outside surrounded by blooms and sunshine, sharing brunch (and mimosas!) with your sweetest ladies. It's also perfect for those hurried weekday mornings when breakfast seems to take a back-burner to oh-this-hair-is-not-ok-AND-these-heels-don't-match or how-did-we-make-it-to-school-and-forget-your-shoes!!! It's OK. You're not the only one. But for those days, this fits nicely in tupperware, eaten cold or warmed!!

It may be the most perfect breakfast/brunch dish ever.
