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.

Ingredients

  • 100g porridge oats
  • 200ml semi-skimmed milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • Extra milk to serve
  • Choice of toppings:
  • Toasted nuts and seeds with golden syrup
  • Bananas and maple syrup
  • Stewed fruits

Method

  • 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.
