White Sauce with Chef Doughty

Learn how to make the perfect white sauce and 5 creative ways to use it!

As discussed in the “Chef Withing Dinner Edition,” a white sauce can be made in a thin, thick or medium consistency.  Here are some places to use it:

1) Make a medium or thin consistency and add grated cheese for a yummy cheese sauce.  This could also be your base for mac and cheese.
2) Make a thin sauce for the base for a cream soup.
3) Make a quick breakfast gravy for biscuits by adding cooked sausage crumbles.
4) The thicker consistency would make a great Alfredo type base for a pizza.
5) By flavoring the white sauce you can create wonderful quick sauces for chicken, fish and vegetables.

This simple recipe along with many more can be found in her new book; The Chef Within Dinner Edition, which was just released earlier this month!
