I think this thread needs a special award!

I click on it thinking its a discussion about porridge, and I learn how uranium is enriched...........? Doh

Oooooooooooooh, I love you guys........Smooch

So, to drag the thread back on topic, I think what you would call porridge, I would call oatmeal (correct me if I'm wrong!) and I found a great recipe for a different twist on it.

Baked Oatmeal!

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Baked-Oatmeal-II/Detail.aspx

Its really good, and I have changed it up with cherries, blueberries, apples and cranberries, and all of them are great.

Be prepared for a big batch if you don't half the recipe!

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

Michelle, that sounds yummy - it also looks like a traybake of flapjacks without being cut up ........ but however, it still gets my vote. I love things cooked with oats.

Good for the cholesterol, too, as it does a great job dissolving those plaques on the artery walls .........

porridge, UK, = oatmeal, US

flapjack, UK= oat based traybake cookie, US--but I am pretty sure traybake isn't the right word, I think it is a bar or square cookie

flapjack, US= pancake, UK

as an ingredient, porridge oats UK=oatmeal US

Yet again, two nations divided by a common language...  Smile

When I was growing up we had a variety of hot cereals in the winter. Leftovers were fried and served with maple syrup the next day. My least favorite was fried oatmeal. I tried it recently, and spread very thin and fried it was like an oatcake, but I still didn't really like it. (I do like oatcakes!)

Now I like porridge with dried fruit and linseed, sometimes (soy) yogurt, and no sugar. And it is organic oatmeal. Then the  brown sugar that melted when you added it was the point of eating it, and it was probably Quaker Oats.

I just discovered that porridge and this forum don't mix. I put the porridge on low, started to read to catch up quickly....and will have to soak the pan well since the porridge stuck. Now I have to eat quickly so I can get to work (working from home, but must have eaten and be ready to start in 25 minutes.) I won't try to eat porridge and read more at the same time, I don't want porridge in the laptop. I may have time for a cup of tea if I stop now.

Barbara, try cooking it in the microwave - and in a very large container, that way it'll take a while to boil over!!Laugh

Thanks brightspark. In fact I rescued it. As soon as I discovered that it had stuck I added more water and stirred. I left it for a few minutes, and it was fine, not burnt, no longer stuck. As I had done enough for 2 days I have enough for tomorrow's breakfast too. I did it in a tall pan, and like it better cooked that way than done in the microwave. I finally have a gas cooker, and am enjoying using it! Smile
