The penultimate recipe for ‘Savoury Porridge Fortnight’ is still egg and protein packed but this time the savoury flavour has been tempered with vanilla.
I love the warm flavour of vanilla and I use it in lots of my recipes. For this Porridge I am using it to specifically temper the egg flavour so you can still get a protein packed breakfast but with more of a sweet hint. Think confectioners custard or egg custard tarts and you are on the right track.
