    I like using a slow cooker overnight.  Water ratio varies with the grain you choose.

    Are you talking about oatmeal porridge?  Why not just use the recipe on the box?  I don't have any handy right now, but you just put some rolled oats and some water or milk, a pinch of salt and simmer it from ten minutes to half an hour, depending on the type, but the typical quaker oats type of oatmeal is usually around ten.  It's pretty simple.

    Then i like it in the bowl, some cold milk poured over it, and some dark brown demerara type sugar (i buy panela)  - or sometimes just salt and butter.

    I used to work in a hotel in Scotland and when I did the breakfast shift I used a ratio of 4:1 liquid to oats. I used half water, half whole milk as the liquid. Cook it low and slow, stirring every now and then. The longer it cooks the better it gets. It would take at least 30 minutes I'd say. We served ours at 7.30am with a shot of whisky (scotch of course) stirred in at the table ;)
