  1. This looks delicious. I’m going to try it soon, but I’m wondering if it can be doubled and put in a 13X9 dish? Have you tried that? I have to make breakfast for 9 people, so I need lots of it.

  2. Alyssa, this recipe looks delicious. I do, however, have a question about the glaze. The directions say to melt the butter in a pan. Then to whisk the cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar together. Drizzle over baked oatmeal. My question is: do I add the cream cheese mixture to the melted butter or drizzle the butter and the cream cheese mixture over the oatmeal separately? Thanks for the great recipes! Julie
