Amish Coffee Soup

When my Italian relatives stayed over they poured a cup of coffee for breakfast, added milk and sugar and then added several tablespoons of raw oatmeal into it. I since tried it and it's not bad with the instant kind of oatmeal.
Instead of oatmeal, the Amish add pieces of bread or crackers and call it coffee soup!
Tradition tells us that such recipes originally derived during the Depression when eggs, meats and the like were scarce. The Amish made due with a minimal of ingredients. This is one such recipe.
