You may find it hard to believe, but most people in England don't really eat a full English breakfast .It's the first thing that my step dad Jan , now departed to the great breakfast nook in the sky, God rest his soul, shouted out joyfully when he came to visit  ."England! Breakfast ! Fried Eggs ! Fried bacon ! " I still remember the look of glee on his face. The reality is, most people eat cereal, toast, or- porridge ( if they are Scottish , they certainly will go for the last option ).

I can vouch for porridge as the best option, honestly.It's my breakfast of choice .Pretty easy to make and keeps you going for ever. Loads of health benefits too.Make it with soja milk if you have a lactose- intolerance problem.

Here's a quick recipe:


1 Cup of porridge oats
3 to 4 cups of milk or soja milk

Put the oats in a sauce pan and add the milk or soja milk . Bring to the boil and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes.
Keep stirring with a wooden spoon as it can stick to the bottom of your pan.
Serve with a spoon of honey, or go fancy and add blueberries, fruit, cinnamon, ( or whatever you like ).
