(Breakfast) Sweet Apple Baked Oatmeal

It’s that time of year, when we love oatmeal for breakfast.  I’m trying a couple of new versions for fall.  For this one I used sweet potato and apple, but pumpkin, would work well too.  In fact, if you have leftover sweet potato casserole, use it in baked oatmeal.  It’s very delicious, and makes a pan big enough for us to eat all week.
