I cook mine with the blueberries in. As well as releasing the flavour into the porridge it also leaves pretty purple trails throughout the bowl. I also include sultanas, and sometimes slice a banana on top.

Have you tried fresh croissants with butter and orange marmelade? That is breakfast. :P

As a vegan I wouldn't, would I? :)

 

But if I did it would probably be strawberry jam. Marmalade goes better on toast.

I added porridge as a keyword to this one - I didn't know oatmeal was porridge lol. Too busy taking photos of my beautiful new grandson (not for stock) but maybe I'll shoot some more when I get home. I have it every day for breakfast.

There's a grain of truth in that.

A whole grain at that. B)

 

BTW, have you tried almond milk on your porridge? It opens up a whole new world.

 

This is the image used as an example in the image requests blog. It doesn't look a heck of a lot like a bowl of porridge, but I guess the buyer was searching for an unusual side view.

Yep - saw the example image - I shot the one I posted a year or so ago, and quickly went on my phone app and added porridge as a keyword and in the caption after seeing the Alamy blog post. Being lactose intolerant, I make it with almond milk; in fact it's one of the image's original keywords. Cashew milk is also nice.

Of course, instead of porridge there's always good old bacon sandwiches...  :P

Haven't tried cashew milk yet. Sounds good. There's a world of nuttiness to explore these days. :P

What has happened to the good old fried bacon, eggs, sausage, black pudding and bread?

 

I haven't had that for some time.

You can get all that plus chips, orange juice and a pot of tea from my local café for 6 Euro. And a stretcher to carry you home:) Had it this morning.

They don't do the stretcher over here but "The Full English" as outlined amounts to 3 Euro following a recent increase (!)  :P

In Ireland, John, they call it The Full Irish. And I don't have porridge every morning.  :o

Pain français avec les fruits -- looks delicious. No shortage of antioxidants there.

 

I've been known to stray from oatmeal as well. Huevos a la mexicana is a favourite of mine.

Yummy, but more calorific than good old porridge!

I remember reading about this too in a past life when I studied Scots Law. Those were the days when I had a "real" job, as I describe it, working in banking!
