All About Fast, Easy, and Delicious

I really enjoy an exciting but basic white sauce slathered all over something every now and then. Like chicken fried steak, pasta or noodles, or any veggie.  A made to order, delicious white sauce is all I need to doctor up my recipes...here's a super fast, easy, and delicious way to add a little Béchamel to your life...

Béchamel Butter & Cream Cheese Balls:
35 balls
2 cups all purpose flour
2 Tablespoons salt
1/2 teaspoon white or black ground pepper
1 1/2 sticks butter or margarine, softened
4 oz cream cheese, softened

1. Mix flour, salt, and pepper into a mixer bowl.


2. Add softened butter and cream cheese; mix until well blended.


3. Drop by rounded tablespoons (I use a small ice cream scoop) onto a parchment lined baking sheet and place in the freezer.

 *After frozen, transfer balls to a zip lock bag, store in freezer for up to 6 months, use whenever...


4. Thin white sauce: 1 ball to one cup of milk, whisked over med heat until melted & thick.
    Medium white sauce: 2 balls to one cup of milk, whisked over med heat until melted & thick.
    Thick white sauce: 3 balls to one cup of milk, whisked over med heat until melted & thick.
5. Be creative...add some cheddar cheese or anything you please!!!


ENJOY!
