According to a friend, a really good porridge, apart from that big pinch of salt, has a little secret added in the end. Butter - melted in a pan till a nice brown. Drizzled onto the warm porridge. And stirred gently in. It's the best porridge tip I've ever received.

And here's porridge according to Spike Milligan.


Why is there no monument
To Porridge in our land?
If it's good enough to eat,
It's good enough to stand!

On a plinth in London
A statue we should see
Of Porridge made in Scotland
Signed, "Oatmeal, O.B.E."
(By a young dog of three)
