- Pro Porridge Practices, Please?
Stay away from the 2 minute microwave ones, get the whole rolled oat ones: They are better for you. 5.5 minutes in the microwave.
I add cinnamon and blueberrys to mine, oh and maybe banana sometimes. Apple works well too.
A dash of natural yoghurt works well on the top after cooking.Posted 4 years agodannybgoodeSubscriber
Microwave? Heresy of the worst kind.
Cup of porrige oats, 450ml of water 200ml of milk and slowly heated until of the desired consistancy.
Readybrek has had all the nutritional goodness of oats removed and then some added back in to look good on the packet – avoid…

I’ve started eating porridge for breakfast. Quaker Oats microwaveable stuff. It’s quite nice, but a bit bland.
Are Quaker Oats The Porridge To Have, or are there better options out there?
What can I add to porridge to make it a bit tastier? Was thinking of maybe a 1/2 banana sliced over the top after cooking?Posted 4 years ago
Also dont get the instant oats, they have loads of sugar and other shit added. The ingredients should just be rolled/cut oats I believe!
Oh yeah, is there any difference between the more expensive oats and my £1.60 big bag of co op ones? I suspect not but willing to pay a bit extra if its worth it given how long a bag seems to last!Posted 4 years agoBigButSlimmerBlokeMember
Oatmeal of Alford if you can find it. Any pinhead if notPosted 4 years ago
Night before a handful in a pan with 50/50 milk water mix and left overnight(it’s called steeping). How much oat/liquid depends on your preferred consistency
3 mins gentle simmer next morning, serve with milk and whatever else – i use honey.chunkypaulMember

the powdery stuff can be done in the microwave
but whole oats have to be done in a pan with lots of stirring so that you get a creamy texture. Done this way is nicer IMO – it’s not the same in a microwave as the oats remain too intact.
my preference is 1 oats 1 milk 2 water for ratios. Pinch of salt while cooking. Then with whatever sweat things are around.
(edit) i’m betting its like risotto in the way the starches break down better if you stirPosted 4 years ago
