Simmer all ingredients until smooth and not gritty, stirring constantly.
If you like it thinner, add more milk.
Top with any combination of maple syrup, heavy cream, brown sugar, raisins, etc.
Sautéed: Same as above except pour into a greased sheet pan or bread pan and cool. If you use a bread pan, once cool, remove it and slice into slices to saute in butter. These are great with maple syrup and sausage. If you used a sheet pan, cut into shapes to sauté.
