I love oatmeal, cooked just until it no longer foams, it is nice and chewy then. I get an 8-Grain cereal that is just roasted and rolled grains, again cooked till chewy...over cooked and I don't want it. Salted and brown sugar. That's all I want. I love all hot cereals. We eat them a lot for dinner.

Too damned hot for it right now, but certainly in colder times.

Steel cut oats, a pat of butter, a little milk and some granola for crunch and I am a happy man. . .and ready for a nap.

took dinner to my granddaughter's house tonight for her birthday. they have a fifteen year old girl from china, as an exchange student. we were talking about food, her english is limited. we asked what they ate for breakfast and she said porridge. made from rice, i checked on line when i got home. it is rice porridge with dried fruit and nuts. how interesting that we were talking about it here. by the way she really like the cake and ice cream. g.d. is taking her for the first run of donuts at a local shop, at about midnight. she went to disneyland yesterday. when asked how she liked it she said "that it made her tired. cute as a button and they are enjoying having her there.

When I was in Japan, one of my favorite breakfasts was a hot rice bowl, cracked raw egg in the middle, and you drizzed a little hot stock over it and stirred it to incorporate everything/cook the egg, and add little green onion and salt. Not conventional, but, I LOVE rice for breakfast!

Yes Goodweed, the cereal you were thinking of is Red River Cereal, I didn't know that it was available in the states at all. I buy it in Canada, I was introduced to it by my Canadian DH. I love it with brown sugar and evaporated milk. Same goes for oats (I prefer steel cut) and cream of wheat or rice. My family never used the word porridge, (just hot cereal) but DH 's family are/were porridge people. What ever you call it, it's a hearty, healthy and yummy meal!

dw eats a bowl if plain (what else?) oatmeal every single day without fail. she swears it keeps her cholesterol down.

i've tried to like it, but i often feel an urge to fix small holes in plaster walls or wood trim rather than eat it. it just seems more appropriate.

Nice ideas guys :) Also glad to see there are still people who enjoy porridge! It's cheap, healthy and delicious so why so many people don't make it baffles me. It doesn't even take that long. We also make a dish here called Melkkos, bits of dough dropped into warm milk and stirred over a medium heat till it's all cooked and thickened. Served with cinnamon sugar for a winters main meal or dessert :) If we're too lazy to make the fresh dough we just use pasta like elbow macaroni or mini shells and use that.
Our wheat porridge is called tasty wheat.

Can you post the exact way you make this? Thanks! I'd love to try it.

I cook the oats with a pinch of salt for about 30mins on a low heat. The porridge should be a soft pouring consistency but not runny.

In a separate pan add one punnet of berries (any kind you like), juice of one lemon and a good squeeze of honey. Cook till berries just start to soften.
In a pretty bowl or glass layer cooked oats, then berries and then double thick greek yoghurt until you've used up all the ingredients ending with a layer of yogurt. Cover with clingfilm and refrigerate till cold and set. Sprinkle with a mix of pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds or decorate with some more fresh berries and enjoy!
You can use a sweetener like stevia to sweeten the berries as well :)
