Topping

1 stick of unsalted butter softened

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats

  1/2 cup sliced almonds

1/2 cup slivered almonds

 Mix the topping ingredients together and distribute evenly over the tops of the baking dishes.

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake casseroles for 30 minutes or until the filling is firmly ‘set’ and the topping is browned.  These may be assembled and refrigerated the night before baking.  Remove from the refrigerator to warm up a bit while the oven is heating.
