Savory Baked Oatmeal with Pears, Cream Cheese & Jam!

Well, I decided to jump on one of my goals early.
Try at least ONE new recipe each month.
If you missed them, you can check them out on this post.

I LOVE OATMEAL and love creating new flavors to try and mix together. I just recently learned about baked oatmeal, so I wanted to experiment again.

I couldn't think of a catchy name for this recipe, so I just named it:
Savory Baked Oatmeal with Pears, Cream Cheese, and Jam!

Packet of Regular Oatmeal
Cream Cheese

Boil Water.
Set oven to about 400 degrees.
Chop up pear into tiny pieces.
Pour oatmeal and pear bits into oven safe baking dish.
Pour boiling water into the dish and mix thouroughly.
Add cream cheese and jam to your taste preference.
(The more cheese you add, the creamier it gets, and the Jam adds a sweetness! YUM!)
Mix all together.
Add extra pear pieces on top.
Place in the oven for about 20 minutes.

The flavor combination is incredible!
