  • I like to have a bowl of hot Oat Meal with extras 5 out of 7 days a week. In a big bowl I mix 2 cups of each, Quick oats, Steel Cut Oats, 12-grain cereal, bran, ground flax, hearts of hemp, millet, & dried cranberries. I fill a 6-liter bucket, put that in the frig, bag the rest & put in the freezer. I have 1/2 cup on those 5 out of 7!! My cholesterol levels are right on. Even better than expected for being 63 years young!! My doctor is happy!! Having oatmeal in a persons diet is a step in the right direction!! Great Video!! Keep Up The Great Job!!

  • @dmacken11 Funny, whenever I get together with my brother and his sons, somebody always goes on line and plays that song and we all start singing along. Can’t get it out of my head for days. My oldest nephew says he’s going to marry her. HA.

  • @steintanz Yes were pretty hoity-toity here:-) And this Oatmeal with almond butter is acceptable to Buster’s palate too. He waits by my feet every morning until I’m finished and licks the bowl. I have to admit I always leave a bite or two in there just for him…..

  • @wawhiker Yeah it was FROSTY in the morning. About 5am I thought I felt Buster start to shiver a bit. Even though he was hot under his blanket he may have been cold from below. I had him on a foam sleeping pad and we were both on an air mattress. Yeah air mattress I know…LOL Any way the air mattress provides zero insulation once it gets cold. I was fine in my zero degree bag. So we went to the truck as the sun came up got all toasty and changed cloths and started the day. Was a fun trip.

  • @RebLin51 I have a box of the Raw Sugar I use for my coffee. I will try that. I just dug out the Molasses I bought a few years ago to make some cookie that required it. Says unsulphured Mild Flavor and just “Molasses as the ingredient not cane or any thing.. Never use the stuff but will have to give it a try. Surprisingly I have gotten some good ideas from this simple little video. One guy adds a Granola bar. That would work in a backpack too. thanks for the idea.

  • @dmacken11 No, special type. Just whatever I can get at the store. Sorghum if I can get it. Otherwise cane molasses. Sorghum is sweeter and lighter. They add molasses to white sugar to make it brown. Or I use the dried cane juice also known as “Raw Sugar”. I just put a dollop in and I guess my “dollop” equals about 2 tablespoons. A sprinkle of good cinnamon and some nut butter and it is breakfast time. I am lactose intolerant so I started adding nut butter to compensate for no cream.

  • Thanks for sharing, great idea. another thing you can do to add to oatmeal is a granola bar. I always pack an extra 1 or 2 just for that.

  • @handyscot1 I get it at Whole foods. I’ve seen it at the local REI also. Check their website for other stores. The squeeze packs are great for putting in a pack. Sometimes when I’m in a rush I’ll have the peanut Butter on a peanut crunch Cliff bar for lunch. Fills me up until I can stop. Really good stuff.

  • @mrriprock2 Can’t get that song out of my head. She’s also the cutest thing for sure. Love that song. She has an album out I think. I looked her up back when I first saw it and wrote her a note someplace. Nice kid.
    Love that Justin’s though too.

  • @medicjimr I think the whole grits thing is due to where you (or your parents) were raised. Like it’s a southern thing maybe. I never had grits as a kid. And only recently tried them. I think you need to know how to prepare them properly too which I don’t.

  • I make mine with a mix of milk and water. And to the bowl I add nuts & raisins with honey. I love adding bananas or apples but nothing available now in the lockdown.

  • @RebLin51 Molasses? Hmm.. I’ll have to give that a try. Any special type you use and how much? Sounds interesting. I like to do the Justin’s along with brown sugar and cinnamon. Not the pre-packaged oatmeal but the good stuff out of the box. Or even the steel cut oats. That’s really good.

  • Steel cut oats, 2 parts water bring to a boil, add 1 part oats. Once “oozy” add in raisins, cinnamon, salt, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. Spicy and delicious!

  • My daily morning breakfast:

    1 half cup of dried oats.
    1 quarter cup sautéed onion.
    1 quarter cup sautéed bell pepper.
    2 fried eggs.
    Chili powder.
    Hot sauce.

    Mix it up in a bowl and enjoy ����

  • It’s called a spitrtle, the Scottish porridge stirrer. Jamie oliver, I’m living on porridge and suggested konchee, so fed up, bland food diet, any tips to help, I’m veggie and have been put on a dairy and gluten diet? No nuts vegies, fed up and only eating one meal a day. Love your videos and TV, have many a book that I’m desparate to get back to. Not cut out for dairy and gluten free as well as being an awkward veggie ☺xx

  • I am the lazy quick oats and warm water person. I never cooked oatmeal because of the mushy texture… Steel oats will be my new experience.

  • Hi Jamie, made the porridge just the way you showed it and while it was still warm in the pan I added 1 small apple peeled and chopped, a handful of golden raisins and slivered almonds. A pinch of cinnamon and vanilla extract. Then served it up with a drizzle of maple syrup and a dollop of jam. Husband loved it. Thank you!

  • why would anyone need a video about how to cook porridge lol.
    take shredded oats, pour some boiling water over it (recommend using a induction waterboiler). wait few minutes. mix some milk in it for more flavour (optional). stir it. done. u can serve it as it is.

  • Geez, one cup of cooked oatmeal with no milk or sweetener is just a carbohydrate bomb. It spikes me at least 50 points. The tiny bit of nutrition can easily be gotten in low carb food. The low fat/cholesterol this is nonsense. There is not a single scientific study not done by or paid for by a drug company showing any benefit to lowered LDL and there are lots of studies sho9wing high carb (oatmeal) food raises triglycerides and lowers HDL which is just the opposite of what we want.

  • I made this with 1/3 cup of rolled whole oats, 3/4 cup water, medium till boil, then covered on low for 8 mins, then added 2 teaspoons of margarine/butter and it came out like pure icecream texture!!

  • Absolutely beautiful recipes but are simple and affordable and easy for most people. Keep bringing us more ideas like this. Healthy and Filled with so many wonderful different flavors that combined beautifully. Thank you.

  • Wow, some of those savoury oatmeal dishes seem like typical rice porridge, just that rice is replaced by oats. Since I find oats to be simpler and quicker to cook than rice, I’ll definitely try these recipes! Thanks for the inspiration.

  • 1/2 cup dry equals 150 not 300 calories from what I’ve read. If you cook 1/2 cup oats in water, it expands to about 1 cup cooked and it is 150 calories.

  • Wow those are awesome ideas. I didn’t like eating oatmeal but since I started watching ur videos it’s my everyday breakfast ������

  • Did he says 3 cups of water to 1 oats??… I’ve just tried that and it’s taken me about half an hour to reduce enough so that it’s a semi solid.

    Think I’ll use 2 water next time so that I can eat it the same day

  • I love loaded oatmeal! I cook it with a sprinkling of chia and flax seeds, and sometimes a mashed banana. Add some diced apple, dried cranberry, shredded coconut…mmmmm!

  • I am Germanistik and I was taught all my life that porridge is one of the most terrible british specialties. Now I tried it and it is sooooooo delicious! Thank you!

  • @rainbowhiker That Buster…you feed him a good meal and he eats the damn bowl! He is a crazy boy. If your an oatmeal fan try that Justin’s almond butter in there. You won’t regret it. They really do make some great stuff.
    Thanks for coming by brother.

  • I have my standard porridge recipe: cook it with water, add (half) a squashed banana, a bit of cinnamon. Pour it into a bowl, add half an apple (cut into small pieces) and if I’m feeling particularly fancy (or if the banana is not ripe enough or if I don’t have an apple), I add some margarine or coconut milk, sometimes some hazelnuts or a bit of agave syrup. I tried it with peanut butter (because lots of people swear by it) but I don’t like it.

  • I have no idea what a “builders mug” is, but it looks like 2/3 mug full. (at 51 to 52 seconds).
    So correct recipe is 1 x very full mug of oats, 3 x 2/3 mug water (which is 2 mugs of water).
    Is that right Jamie?

  • I know that water is more traditional but i find that i don’t like the taste unless i add heaps of sweetener. I make my porridge with non dairy milk (i’m dairy intolerant) then sweeten it slighly with either fruit or golden syrup

  • I’m not a fan of the mushroom dish because I hate mushrooms, but I have to admit, these are some really interesting dishes. I’m really intrigued by the carrot cake dish and chocolate dish. Totally going to try these! Love the tip on the frozen cherries too!

  • Cut a banana in half and fry in olive oil until it starts to caramelise itself and use that as a porridge topping! I’ve never gone back!
