Cornmeal porridge is a simple yet elegant breakfast. It’s a delicious, nutrient-rich, and satisfying breakfast for cold mornings. While it uses only a few ingredients, it has a rich flavor and a smooth, creamy texture.
Gentle heat and constant stirring help to prevent the much-dreaded curdling. Start stirring immediately you add the cornmeal to the water. When stirring it is important to reach the bottom, sides, and corners of the saucepan to prevent the porridge from sticking and scorching. Don’t be afraid to add more milk if your porridge appears too thick Remember, the colder the porridge gets, the thicker, its consistency. If you are not eating immediately you may want to add a little extra milk.
