The main differences between oatmeal in the United States and the United Kingdom are:

1. Terminology:
- In the US, "oatmeal" typically refers to rolled or steel-cut oats cooked into a porridge.
- In the UK, "oatmeal" usually means a finer, more powdery ground oat product, while "porridge" refers to the cooked dish made from rolled or steel-cut oats.

2. Texture:
- US oatmeal, made from rolled or steel-cut oats, has a heartier, chewier texture.
- UK porridge oats are often rolled thinner, resulting in a creamier, smoother texture when cooked.

3. Serving style:
- In the US, oatmeal is commonly served sweet, with toppings like sugar, honey, fruit, or milk.
- In the UK, porridge is often served with salt or savory toppings, although sweet toppings are also popular.

4. Instant oats:
- Instant oatmeal packets are more common in the US, often flavored and sweetened.
- While instant oats are available in the UK, they are less popular than traditional porridge oats.

Despite these differences, the oats used in both countries are nutritionally similar, and the preparation methods can vary based on personal preferences.
