Oatmeal "French Toast"

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 362


4 cups unsweetened apple juice
1 orange juiced and grated for zest
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 cups quick cooking rolled oats (not instant)
1 cup warmed


Put the apple juice, orange zest and juice, raisins, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium saucepan and stir to combine. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add the oats and stir rapidly for 30 seconds. Cover, decrease the heat to low, and cook for 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and uncover. Let the oatmeal cool for 10 minutes. Transfer to a 2-quart square container. Press down on the oatmeal with a spatula to remove all the air pockets and smooth the top. Once the oatmeal is cool to the touch, cover the container and refrigerate for 8 to 10 hours, until firm. At this stage, the oatmeal will keep for 1 week in the refrigerator.

When you’re ready to make the Oatmeal “French Toast,” preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Uncover the oatmeal container, turn it upside down on a cutting board, and pop out the oatmeal. Cut it into thin slices, between 1/4 and 1/2 inch thick.

Put the slices on the lined baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, until golden brown. Put the slices on serving plates and drizzle with the Dried Peach Sauce. Serve hot.

• Replace the apple juice with other juices, such as unsweetened pineapple or mango juice.
• Replace the raisins with other dried fruits, such as chopped apricots, cherries, or currants.
