Porridge is a great breakfast for any time of the year. Choose the topping of your choice for an energy-packed start to the day.
- 100g porridge oats
- 200ml semi-skimmed milk
- Pinch of salt
- Extra milk to serve
- Toasted nuts and seeds with golden syrup
- Bananas and maple syrup
- Stewed fruits
Half the amount of porridge oats and milk if you are making porridge for one.
- Place the oats, milk, 300ml water and salt into a pan. Bring slowly to the boil, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon. Cook the porridge slowly for a couple of minutes, then pour into warm bowls (which will prevent it setting instantly).
- Pour extra milk around the edge, then add the topping of your choice and serve immediately.
