Hogwarts Scottish Porridge is featured in the Harry Potter books as a favorite breakfast dish that Harry, Ron, and Hermione enjoy in the Great Hall.


  • 1 cup Scottish oats
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (may sub dairy-free milk alternative if you wish)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4th tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)

The Hogwarts Scottish Porridge depicted in this post is dressed with the following toppings:

  • Bowl #1: Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, Greek yogurt
  • Bowl #2: Pecans, sliced almonds, melted brown coconut sugar

For more topping ideas check out the Scottish Porridge Fit for the Hogwarts Great Hall section earlier in the post.


  1. Bring oats, milk, water, and salt to a simmer in a medium pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Once oats begin to simmer, lower heat to medium-low and allow to cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. The porridge should have begun to thicken by now.
  3. Add nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla, stirring to combine.
  4. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes or until the porridge is thick but pourable.
  5. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 1-2 minutes. The porridge will thicken even further at this time.
  6. Serve immediately with desired toppings. Leftovers make for great packable meal prep breakfasts when stored in microwavable glass storage containers or Weck jars.
