Favorite Ingredients Friday (Sauce Edition II)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for a special Favorite Ingredients Friday Sauce Edition II! Last year you all gave me many great sauce recipes. I can't wait to see what sauce recipes you all come up with. I do love sauces! :)

My contribution is a flavorful sauce that has many uses! Mash some of this sauce in with freshly boiled potatoes for a lovely garlic mashed potato recipe. Use the sauce for steak or instead of ketchup with sausages or burgers. Make up a large batch of it and use as a dipping sauce at your next barbeque. You can even use it pasta. This sauce is extremely versatile.

White Garlic Sauce

2 1 1/2 oz (45gm) Butter
1 Onion, finely chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, crushed
1 Glass Dry White Wine
Salt and Pepper
1 oz (30gm) Flour
1/2 pint (280 ml) Milk

Melt 1/2 oz (15gm) butter in a pan, add the chopped onions and cook gently until soft and golden. Add the garlic and cook for another minute or so. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the wine, turn up the heat and reduce the volume by about half. Remove from heat.
In another pan melt the remaining 1 oz (30 gm) of butter. Add the flour, stir and cook for about five minutes.

Now add the milk. If you've never made a white sauce before, the key is: take it slowly. Add just a little milk, stir well, then a little more. At first the result will look like a pastry. After a little more milk it will resemble an elastic dough. Beat this smooth. Then as you add the rest of the milk a little at a time keep stirring. You'll end up with a nice thick sauce.

Mix in the onion and garlic and you're done.

Serve the garlic sauce warm.

If things go horribly wrong and the garlic sauce is lumpy, don't panic - just bung it in a food processor and whizz for a few seconds. Yes, it's cheating but no-one will ever know!

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday Sauce edition recipe!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.
