Make the wholesome, simple breakfast.


  • 100 g oatmeal
  • 550 ml water or milk
  • pinch of salt


  1. Use a thick- based saucepan and bring the water to the boil, adding salt.
  2. Then sprinkle the oatmeal on top of the liquid and stir all the time until the porridge thickens, cover with a lid and simmer for approximately 20 minutes.
  3. If you have an Aga this does brilliantly in the simmering oven overnight so that it is ready to eat in the morning.
  4. In that case, use only 450 ml of water/milk and put into the Aga as soon as the porridge has thickened.
  5. You may serve this with either milk or yoghurt, and stewed fruit. It is also delicious with a little cream!
