I love to serve this all fall, but it also makes a wonderfully sweet Thanksgiving side.

If you are cooking for a baby, you can optionally leave out the honey and add an additional tablespoon of dark brown sugar or scald the milk with honey it in to cook the honey so it is baby safe.

My youngest is 11 months currently, and he had this last week, without consequence. Prepared in the above mentioned way.
