But, what do you do if you ignore the instructions to use the bag the oats are in to measure your water/milk, guessing, badly, and use far too much so that after cooking your breakfast is runnier than a schoolgirl's nose on a January morning?!
Chuck your 8p (plus milk and water) and start again? Or think outside the box, making your breakfast even more breakfast'y?
I did this and to thicken things up, I suppose I could have used cornflour etc. but I simply grabbed half a slice of bread, Olive Spread and Marmalade spread on it, then broke it up and worked it in. Voila! Nice thick porridge with a sweet and start-the-day twist ;-)
