Porridge

Allthough, most of the time, we have breakfast with joghurt and fruit/muesli/nuts, now and then I like to start the day with something a bit more hearty. When it´s chilly outside there´s nothing better than a bowl of hot porridge.

4 portions

Ingredients:
500 ml milk
80 g oatmeal/rolled oats
1 appel
40 g raisins

Optional:
1 teaspoon honey
Cinnamon

Put the oats in a saucepan, pour in the milk and bring to the boil. Wash the raisins and give them in the pan. Let it simmer for about 8 minutes while continuously stirring. Put off the heat. Slice the appel in little pieces and stir in the porridge.

Serve in a little bowl, when you like you can drizzle a teaspoon of honey and a pinch of cinnamon on top.
