Porridge...is it the same as oatmeal?...the word sounds endearingly very Dickensian. Mental image of the holiday tradition of watching Mr. Scrooge along side his hearth, wearing his stocking cap, eating his lonesome dinner in that huge, dark, dreary house. After his former business partner Marley's spirit appears, Ebenezer rationalizes the event with the words "must've been something I et"...haha (That line has made me chuckle everytime I've heard it) 'Christmas is coming the geese are getting fat'...:)
Tried to find the answer to the above question re porridge & oatmeal but the best item found is a microwave recipe for the former. Question before the RA court is - Does RA prefer his porridge thick or runny? Personally, my preference for the American equivalent - Quaker Oatmeal - is thick...with a dollop of melted butter & sprinkled w/cinnamon...hmmm, temps are finally below 70deg...time for a bowl of smooth, comforting thick oatmeal. A cozy reminder of childhood winter mornings. See porridge poll;)
>LOUISE: How do you cook porridge in a microwave?
If you follow the instructions on the Quaker oats packet (4 minutes on full power) it boils over. What's the perfect microwave porridge recipe?
DELS: First get a large enough container or bowl. I use a 2 pint pudding basin, Pyrex or earthenware. For one person half a cup of oats, a full cup of milk and half a cup of water. The amount of water can be varied depending if you like the porridge thick or runny. Micro for 4 minutes, Mine is a 750 watt, so if yours is more powerful you might give a Little less. Also for the fist couple of times, watch through the glass window. You Will see if it is going to boil over. Open the door quickly to stop the micro. Let the porridge subside, then close door and restart Still watch it... You Will be able to assess the best time to suit your power of microwave. Main thing is , the porridge will rise so make sure the basin is large enough to start with.<
