This isn't really a recipe so much as I'm just sharing a different way to eat your morning oatmeal. I absolutely love oatmeal and biscuits. My Grandfather (my Mom's Dad) ate his oatmeal like this, and I've never forgotten it.
Tear up some biscuits, mix them into your oatmeal with a crap-ton of sugar and there you go...a sweet and tasty breakfast! Now, some people may not be diggin' the whole 'dump a ton of sugar on your oatmeal' thing, but I don't care. If it was good enough for Pop-Pop, it's good enough for me! You can of course skip that part, but it'll be pretty bland.
You could also try this with flavored oatmeal. I never have...for some reason this is just one of those recipes I never mess with. I always make it just the way he ate it. I figure if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
'Pop-Pop's Oatmeal and Biscuits'
Source: My Grandfather
1 cup Quaker oats original oatmeal
1 cup water
2-3 tablespoons milk
sugar to taste (I use about 3 tablespoons)
biscuits of choice (I use Grands!)
1. Heat oven to 375. cook biscuits according to package directions.
2. Meanwhile, pour water and a dash of salt in a small pan. Bring water to a boil and stir in the oats. Cover and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
3. Remove biscuits from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes. Transfer oats to a bowl and add milk one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.
4. Sprinkle desired about of sugar over oats (I like mine very sweet, so I use about 3 tablespoons). Tear 2-3 biscuits into small pieces and stir into oatmeal. Add more biscuits while eating if desired.
**You can of course use instant oatmeal or even flavored oatmeal if you so choose. I've just always made it this way. Either way, you have to wait for the biscuits to cook, so the instant oatmeal won't save much time**
