Stretching Meat With a White Sauce

Knowing how to make a white sauce, will allow you to feed a lot of people with as little as 1 cup of meat. This is also a great way to use your home canned meat and vegetables.

This is a very loose “recipe” to allow you to use what you have on hand and to cater it to your taste and texture.

Basic White Sauce
2 Tbsp – 4 Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp – 1/4 Cup Flour (more for a thicker sauce)
3 1/2 – 4 Cups Milk/Broth (any ratio. Use more broth if making a chowder)
2-4 Cups Vegetables
1-2 Cups Meat and/or Beans (Turkey, Tuna, Chicken, and Ham work best. You can use beans as well!)
Spices (Salt, Pepper, Tarragon work well)

Ways to Use This Recipe
– Serve on top of biscuits or rice
– Top with a pie crust or dumplings and bake as a casserole dish
– Use more broth and make a chowder soup
