What's yours?

The perfect tea and toast breakfast.

Mine is D5E... except that it's usually coffee and home made marmalade. 😋

None of 'em - I only have breakfast if I go away and stay at a hotel, then it's the full English. 😉

E3D or just E1D

Most days just have porridge made from Lidi Simple Oats done in the microwave topped with yogurt

Can't beat a bit of porridge in the week especially at this time of the year. Made in the pan ours, with either a dab of marmalade in the middle (yes, it works) or a dab of honey. The Mrs then sprinkles some mixed seeds over the top. 

Fry up on a Sunday if I can find any bacon, or just toast and coffee if not. 

Double duck egg breakfast always a special treat.

As a Jock I find it disgusting and offensive to the palete, that people are willing to pollute their porridge with anything other than a splash of milk (sorry guys). This is aided and abetted by the likes of Quaker who are producing monstrous concoctions then selling them as porridge.

I agree @Mook  Thumbs_Up

Even as a sassenach I prefer my porridge uncontaminated by sweeteners etc.

I make it with just milk (no water) and leave it to cool for 10-15 mins.

 

Is microwaving permitted 'cos that's how I make mine?

Yes it's allowed quicker and less washing up I use same bowl to make and eat it

Ah no, one of out daughters bought us a traditional Scottish porridge spurtle this Christmas gone, so I guess we can be forgiven for all of our additives.

D5D. Or porridge made with milk.

Don’t mind the odd cup of coffee but never with food.

Tea with food unless it Chips and Fish.....in which case it’s a bottle of beer.

Amazing! We have one too. My wife was sent one as a present by her first husband's second ex-wife as they were surprisingly good friends - and both capable of the same error of judgement!

We have since made porridge in the microwave which is a two stage process with careful measurement, settings and timing, but at least you don't have to wash up the pan. My additives are maple syrup, cream, and a hint of stewed apricot.

Re: What's yours?

I prefer porridge with a sprinkle of fruit.

Either my raspberries, blackcurrants, or redcurrants that I froze the previous year.
