Baked Oatmeal and Crockpot Lasagna

I was looking for something new to make for breakfast, and I remembered a recipe I haven't used in a long time... Baked Oatmeal! I don't remember where I got it origionally.It's very filling, and almost like very moist cake in texture.

Baked Oatmeal

Oven at 350 degrees, 25 minutes
3 cups oats
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2-1 cup dried fruit (I used about 3/4 cup raisins and added a grated apple)
1/2 cup applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
equivalent of 2 eggs (I put 1 tbsp Egg Replacer with the dry and 1/2 cup water with the wet ingredients)
1 cup rice or soy milk

Mix dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl, wet ingredients in a measuring cup. Combine, bake in a lightly greased pan.

I decided to try making lasagna in the crockpot, and it worked ok but the edges on one side were burned. It tasted really good, though, so I'll try it again sometime but when I can start it later in the day. I served it with salad and some bread sticks (Made from a basic biscuit recipe with basil, rosemary and garlic added. I also put a little bit of quick oats in the dough to make the consitency a bit stiffer.)

I didn't really follow a recipe. I put in some sauce, some unbaked lasagna noodles, some tofu mixture (Silken firm tofu with a little flour, soy sauce, oregano and nutritional yeast, all mashed together.), some diced kale, carrots and mushrooms, then more noodles, sauce, repeat. I did water the sauce down a little and used a lot of it, the noodles use up a lot of liquid as they cook. Oh, and I sprayed the crock with some non-stick spray before I started.
