    What's everyone's favourite brand of porridge? I wonder if it makes a difference to the end result...

    Scots Old Fashioned. Much much cheaper than anything in a sachet. And a better texture, too.

    Scott's for me too, made in a pan on the hob, 40g (hexb and 2 syns) with 250ml milk (hexa) and 25ml water. Normally mix through lots of cinnamon and a whole grated Apple, yum, yum, yum!

    I assume we're all remembering that the current rules state that porridge oats need to include a oat/scan bran for it to technically be a HeB...

    I have the sachets too. It's just quicker in the morning but I do prefer the real oats. They are more creamy and better texture. I have a small dollop of syrup with mine.

    And no I don't have a scan bran with mine but still count it as a hex. Doesn't do me any harm.

    I know what you mean, I do think it's the ultimate cold weather breakfast. In the week I had it with frozen mixed berries and a tbsp of golden syrup (2 syns). It felt so luxurious!

    I buy Sainsbury's own brand frozen berries they are only £1.07 per pack, much cheaper than other shops.

    I buy supermarket own brand oats. Pop 28g in a bowl (always weigh) cover with so milk & microwave for 2 mins. I've had this breakfast everyday for the best part of a year and I've never had the ryvita or scan bran!

    Supermarket own is less than £1 for a bag and lasts foreverrrrr! Never bothered with oats so simple. I'd only buy them if I knew I'd be without some scales.

    I have Tesco finest jumbo oats and I love them! They stay quite whole and chunky.
    I don't like cheap oats as they go all mushy, I'm also a fan of Scott's too.

    I make it with water and add a crumbled scan bran and a chopped banana.

    I love porridge oats :)

    I get mine from Sainsbury's too - I like the range of choice they have, and the prices are good.
