  1. Hi Beth,
    Is there a way that I could get a copy of the Teen Missions cookbook. I cook for three week long mission trips each summer and would really like some large group recipes. I cook from anywhere from 100 to 250 for breakfast/dinner and have cooked to up to 900 for lunch. We have used prepacked ready to bake meals from Sam’s Club/Costco but I am really trying to save the ministry money by making meals from scratch. I would appreciate any help or advice I can get. Thanks!

  2. My Mom used this recipe for several years as Head Cook at church camp in Northern Illinois. YUM! We would have eaten it everyday.
    She used a lot of recipes out of her Feeding The Multitudes cookbook from Teen Missions International.

  3. Im an FTMer, venezuela preteen 93′, venezuela 94′ and venezuela 96’…i was just telling my husband the other day that i still have not figured out how to make tmi’s baked oatmeal! Now i can…may seem like no big deal but seeing this recipie posted brought tears to my eyes! So many memories took me back. Thank you!

    1. Mary, We use the larger baking pans (industrialized size). You would need to cut the recipe down. If it says it will feed 30 and you want to only feed 6, then cut the amounts by 5.

  4. I made this a few weeks ago for the young men at a Boys Ranch I work at. When I told them what it wad noses curled up and eyes rolled. Most of the boys and staff took the min required serving…ALL of them took seconds, thirds and some had fourths. The have been asking ever since when I will be making it next. It’s on the menu for tomorrow 🙂

  5. This recipe worked great for us just as written. If you try it and it takes longer to bake, try using a bigger pan next time and spreading it a little thinner. If it doesn’t seem to serve 30, cut the pieces smaller and serve it with some fruit 🙂

      1. Keep in mind if you’re feeding teenagers you will only feed 12-15 on that recipe. My friend and I made a one-third recipe the other day and we ate about two thirds of that at one sitting.
