Put oats in a saucepan, pour in milk or water and sprinkle in a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes, stir continuously until it starts to thicken. To serve, pour into bowls and add your favorite toppings.

Here are some ideas: honey, Greek yogurt, dried or fresh fruit, nuts, chocolate, peanut butter – the options are endless.

Make a hole in a center of toast bread. Place bread in a greased pan. Break an egg into a hole in bread. Cook slowly until egg is set and bottom of bread is browned. If you like, turn over and cook top of egg. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with feta cheese and ham or bacon.
