  Article Content


Porridge is a soft food made by boiling oats (normally crushed oats, occasionally oatmeal) or another meal in water or milk. Some other meals used for porridge include wheat, peasemeal, barley, or cornmeal. In many cultures it is eaten as a breakfast, often with the addition of sugar or cream. Some manufacturers of breakfast cereal sell "ready-made" versions.

See also grits, mush[?], gruel[?]. For the British TV comedy, see Porridge (TV).
