This is a very different type of porridge that is quick and easy to make. A good healthy breakfast when you are looking for a break from oatmeal. DH said it was lacking depth and suggested adding nuts and maybe more raisins.

This was lovely for a change of pace for brekky, a bit different from your regular porridge. I topped with a little maple & some vanilla yoghurt, lovely thanks!

I liked this recipe just fine. It was a nice change up for a breakfast cereal. I didn't use any maple syrup or molasses, which might be why I thought it was good but not outstanding.

What a great comfort, warming food. I was looking for recipes using polenta (although I would use freshly gorund cornmeal) and wanted to try this for something different in the morning. This is quite good, although I am not a maple syrup lover, so I used some freezer jam I had made this week and it was delicious! Another great healthy food idea from Paula.

Another recipe so simple and delicious you scratch your head wondering why you hadn't come to the idea on your own. Pairing my morning staple of oats with polenta was a surefire hit - both are creamy and comforting. What really surprised me was just how well they went together with the cornmeal giving the dish a lovely sweetness that was heightened by the drizzle of maple. For the dried fruit, I used a combination of golden raisins, dried cranberries, and diced dried apricots. Will definitely keep a supply of the mix together for the future. Thanks!

this was great! after i realy wanted to make it i discovered i had no cornmeal, but i did have a bag of corn tortillas, so i just ground them up in the blender and added a bit more oat bran to make sure it thickened and it seems to be fine. i added a small handful of golden raisins, a couple tablespoons of dark molasses and a tbs or so of syrup and its perfect, thansk for a different and great warming recipe for breakfast in the cold months!

I couldn't get my blimmin broadband going this morning so I had to make this recipe from memory. In the end I made it with 1/3 cup oat bran, 1/3 cup polenta and 1 2/3 cups skim milk, then I covered it in golden syrup and ate it all up myself. Yummy! It definitely needed the extra liquid that I now see is listed (it was well stodgey!) and the cinnamon would definitely have added to it, but all in all this was a great, filling breakfast that definitely serves two (I just about managed to eat it all but I didn't need to eat again until 2.30pm after that!)! I'm a really boring breakfast person - weetabix in the summer, porridge in the winter, so it was such a nice change to be able to have a different hot breakfast that was still wholesome and tasty. I'll definitely have this again - next time I'll make it to the proper measurements and will add the cinnamon, but I'll probably continue to make it with milk because breakfast is the only time I get any calcium in me. Thanks for a great recipe, Paula!
