White Sauces

Wonderful White Sauces to Consider

A simple white sauce forms the basis for so many other sauces, and learning how to make a white sauce means you can make any of these, as well as other dishes, from scratch. Discover how to make white sauce and you will be able to make a dish like lasagna featuring the sauce, or even make something perfect to serve over pasta, meat, fish, veggies, or something else. A basic white sauce comprises flour, butter, milk, salt and pepper, but this is the foundation of many other sauces too, and adding 1 or 2 ingredients to that basic mixture can create something totally different. This is not the only way to make white sauce though, and a sauce which is white in color can also be termed a white sauce.

Working with Basic White Sauce

Add cheese, herbs, citrus, curry, meat stock or broth, garlic, or other ingredients and you will be able to convert your white sauce into something else. That is one of the biggest appeals of such a sauce though, and once you have learned how to make a white sauce from scratch you will be able to make all kinds of other sauces just by adding new flavors to it. A white sauce might be based on mayonnaise, milk, cream, cream cheese, or other white-colored ingredients, and some are savory such as white wine sauce or béchamel sauce, while there are also sweet versions which combine butter, flour and milk with sugar and brandy, rum or another flavoring.

Hello, I'm Christine. Thanks for dropping by and welcome to Amazing Sauces. Food is a very important part of our family's lives, and I find a homemade sauce often finishes a dish perfectly. Whether you are making something with chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, an appetizer, or even a dessert recipe, a sauce is often the ideal finishing touch.

You will find many sauce recipes here, all conveniently in one place, from the classics like tomato sauce, béchamel sauce and cheese sauce, to gravies, marinades, and unusual ideas for sauces too like ginger-plum sauce or gorgonzola sauce.

Some sauces can be drizzled over the meal, while others are best served on the side. Some will work as a dip or sauce, while others are great for basting, marinating or adding a splash of color to a recipe. Try our creamy gravies with your breakfast, one of our international steak marinades for a sophisticated spin on dinner, or learn how to make a classic béarnaise or rich red wine sauce to complement your dish.
