I love porridge for its earthy flavor and creamy bite, but I also see it as a blank canvas in which to spin tales of delicious and diverse toppings. The opportunities for creativity and invention are endless — from sweet to savory, and everything in between. Once you start to move beyond traditional brown sugar and raisins, you'll find merriment in blobs, dashes, and slivers of anything and everything lingering in the larder.
Today, I present you with 10 current favorite ways to top a bowl of oatmeal. They're inspired by my travels, the season, and my mood — use these combos as a basic formula and add in your own favorite edible goodies. You could even do an oatmeal bar breakfast party where everyone gets to make their own bowl full of contrasting textures and flavors!
