Don't have leftover porridge? No problem. Simply place 50g of oats in a small pan over a medium heat with 250ml milk and bring to the boil and reduce the temperature to a low heat and continue cooking for around 10-12 minutes until thick and creamy. Leave the porridge overnight covered with some clingfilm.
