From The Rising Of The Sun

Good morning! Start your day bright and right with this hearty baked porridge from Bill Granger. Bill Granger is an Australian self taught cook and food writer. He owns Bills, a popular restaurant chains in Sydney, Japan and London. His restaurants are famous for breakfast dishes, notably his scrambled eggs and ricotta hotcakes.
I like to read Bill Granger's cookbooks and watch him on TV.  He looks like a nice family man doting on his three daughters. Bill Granger cooks in a very relax, laid back manner which is very pleasing to watch on screen. His style is wonderfully simple and straightforward.
This breakfast is a perfect start to his easy healthy cooking. This recipe is adapted from his book, Bill's Basics.

Baked Porridge
Bill's Basics

Preheat oven to 150C, scatter 135g oats, 75g roughly chopped hazelnuts, 75g roughly chopped sultanas or figs(I replaced with  frozen blueberries),  I tablespoon of soft brown sugar, a pinch of salt and 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon.

Pour in the milk,cream and vanilla extract(all combined in a jug), baked for 45 minutes

Sprinkle with the remaining sugar and put back in the oven for another 15 minutes to let the top crisp up.

Serve with cream, milk, yogurt or stewed fruits

Leftover can be kept in the fridge and re-heated the next day

Oat Porridge is one of my favourite breakfast food or anytime food. Years ago, when I was a busy mom with 3 young children, I used to cook for them oat porridge instead of rice. I usually made sweet porridge, adding honey and milk. I also prefer to use quick cooking rolled oats instead of instant ones. As for myself, I like oat porridge with condensed milk, something which I grew up with.
