      To American ears, porridge sounds like something people eat only in
      nursery rhymes. Everybody's heard of it, but nobody knows what it is.

      In North America, the generic term for "kase" is "hot cereal".
      Google it, and you'll get more than 3 million sites that show it's
      exactly the term you want. It includes all different types, from all
      different grains. "Instant hot cereal" is also used.
