50g to feed 3 people? Is this correct?

    Hi Carol, you don’t say which ingredient you’re asking about, but if it’s the rolled porridge oats, the recipe states 80g for 3 servings. Hope you enjoy the recipe!

I Like the look of the apple pie porridge but there’s only me who eats porridge, can this recipe be reheated?

    HollyWednesday 9th February 2022

    Hey Gillian, yes this porridge can be reheated from chilled. Place in a microwave proof container with loosely fitting lid and heat for 4-7 minutes until piping hot. Or you can heat it on the stove in a saucepan covered with a lid. You may need to add a little water if it looks a bit dry! Hope that helps!
