I make mine with less water so it cools to thick cake-this can be cut into slabs and fried .Can be served as a party of cooked breakfast or eaten by itself.Same with oatmeal.Best to use jumbo oats.

Porridge? A grey, viscous substance, more suitable for cows. But rather like the dried bean soup and bean curry, it helps me stop eating :wink:. It only takes 4-5 days on animal feed and the desire to eat and weight drops off (Nb. 4th week on the autumn slim down!)

It's a winter thing for me. With hot milk, honey and raisins. It's the ultimate breakfast in my view!

For me it’s a ‘love / hate’ relationship. It’s a bit of a chore to eat it, but it’s fantastic fuel.

It's more of a hate/hate relationship with me.I can never stomach enough to make it decent fuel :?
I've tried it with almost everything and it's just hideous stuff.
