Creamy, elegant, wintery and easy! The citrus and bergamot flavours from the tea-soaked oats are perfect with ripe, roasted in-season pears. These were homegrown pears 🍐

It takes a little bit longer than a quick bowl of microwave oats but really worth the effort. Perfect morning breakfast treat over the Christmas season, I love putting a square of dark chocolate on top that melts as you eat it. Let me know what you think!

P.S. as always I can recommend soaking your oats for 30 mins - overnight before cooking, it does make it super creamy! But they are equally delicious if you miss this step!

  • 1 cup (100g) rolled oats (old-fashioned oats)
  • 1 Earl Grey Tea Bag
  • 2 Small Pears, halved
  • 1 TBSP Honey
  • Sprinkling of Cinnamon
  • Yoghurt, Dark Chocolate (for topping)
  • 3/4 - 1 Cup (200ml) of Milk of Choice

Pour 100ml of boiling water into a pan with the earl grey tea bag and oats, and leave for 5-10 minutes to infuse.
Remove the tea bag, discard, then place the pan over a low heat and add the 200ml of milk. Cook gently for 10-15 minutes until thick and creamy, adding the honey to taste.
When the pears are ready, pour the porridge into two bowls and top with a swirl of yoghurt, the pears, and a square of dark chocolate if you like (I recommend!)
