Two more things.  It snowed here.  Like a lot, when we were only expecting a couple inches. Want to see the beauty of it?  Check out my Instagram video post here.  It was utterly breathtaking...and I don't use that word lightly.

Second.  I'm done with my holiday shopping!  If you remember I vowed to be done by December 1st. Well, I only get one slap across the hand because I finished up on December 2nd.  You need to understand that this is leaps and bounds above where I am every other Christmas.  I'm usually heading out 4 days prior trying to shove it all in before the big day. Kudos to me.  And thank you to Amazon for the brilliance of online shopping.

You guys, I've been dying to show off this recipe for over a month!  The minute I opened the oven and smelled this baked oatmeal I felt like it WAS Christmas morning.  I was just prayed it tasted as good.

I was first contacted by the wonderful company Rigoni di Asiago earlier this Fall.  Any company that makes homemade jams, chocolate hazelnut spreads and honeys has my attention about as quick as the pizza delivery guy.

Located in Italy {please take me back, I was there once back in high school, and am dying to return} Rigoni di Asiago is a family-owned company that delicious, organically farmed jam, honey and chocolate spreads.  Pretty much everything I love!    Over 100 years ago the Rigoni grandmother found herself widowed with nine children after the First World War.  

Her honey side hobby quickly turned into a small business and by 1930 was a household name all over Italy.  Today the company employees over 2,000 seasonal fruit pickers and over 200 full-time employees world wide.

My first attempt at baked oatmeal was my Peanut Butter and Chocolate Swirled Baked Oatmeal a couple years back.  People loved the stuff!  They told me that it was like eating dessert for breakfast and I completely 100% agreed with them.

This Yellow Cake Strawberry Hazelnut Baked Oatmeal took that first attempt and basically threw it out the window.  My kids went bonkers.  I left it on the counter and we munched away on it for a few days.  It is great at room temperature and I loved that stayed fresh for early morning breakfasts throughout the week.

I wanted to incorporate all three of these spreads, because, really why not?  Of course I first had to get out three separate spoons and taste them all.  You're welcome.

It may sound a bit weird but the base of this dish is a yellow cake mix and lots of oatmeal. You will have a bit of dry yellow cake mix leftover...don't throw it out!  You can easily tuck it away for a sweet treat dessert later on.  Simple directions can be found HERE to make an individual mug cake in the microwave with just 3 tablespoons of cake mix.

Rigoni di Asiago has graciously agreed to send two lucky readers two jars each of their honey, hazelnut spread and fruit spread.  Woo-hoo!

Until then, even if you aren't the winner make this breakfast/brunch dish!  You can simply swap out your favorite honey, jam and chocolate spread.
