Here's my recipe for the old prison favourite:

"Quaker" JUMBO porridge oats and no other- for real texture and nuttiness.
Good squeeze of pouring honey,
Good handful of sultanas
Heaped tablespoonful dessicated coconut.
Good pinch ground sea salt
Big grind of ground pepper.

Method: Add sufficient cold tap water to cover level oats by 1 cm
Stir really well and continuously over high heat until all the water is almost absorbed. Serve immediately and eat from side of plate while it cools down. Yummy.

I find this recipe so delicious that it turns boring old porridge into a gourmet sensation!

Give it a try....

This is a really good breakfast. I love porage and I love honey on it
so to have banana added to it too - it's delicious

Great way to start the day! Used mixed nuts instead of hazelnuts and it worked just as well.

I have porridge five times a week in the winter but made the old fashioned way with oatmeal, a little salt and water. None of this fruit on top! Yuck! I soak the oatmeal, salt and water overnight then cook for two minutes in the microwave, stir, then cook for another two minutes. Serve with milk. Delicious!
