Food 01/07/2019

One woman has shared a very unlikely hack when it comes to making your morning porridge.

While many of us opt for adding something sweet if we want to 'spruce up' our porridge, using things like date syrup or berries, a woman has said that we should be going the opposite way.

Her tweet reads: "About 16 years ago, my first boyfriend's father told me to forget adding sweet stuff to porridge and try using a dollop of butter instead.

"About a week ago I started (vg butter) and not to be dramatic, but it's incredible and I might add him to my will."

More than 2,400 people liked her post with numerous users commenting to share their thoughts.

One person replied: "I'm here for this. I'm adding butter to everything these days."

Another woman said: "This sounds like something that is vile to witness but heavenly to experience."

However not everyone was convinced and some began sharing their own preferred toppings instead.

"The Scots and Scandis have been adding salt to their porridge for like, ever, and it's the best," replied a different user.

Someone else wrote: "Savory porridge with miso, trust me."

Another proclaimed: "Will DM you my contact details because you're probably going to want to thank me in person for this... drop the butter and add organic peanut butter. I prefer crunchy, but it's magnificent regardless. With cinnamon, nutmeg and a dash of vanilla if you want the full experience."

Others confessed that they liked to add Vegemite to theirs, Greek yoghurt and fruit or golden syrup.
