"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Tasty Tuesday: Cheesy Cream Sauce (or soup)

Y'all, after making this, I don't think I will ever buy cream of anything soup again. I seriously had to restrain myself from eating it before we used it for dinner tonight. I was making enough for a family of 5 which includes 3 boys with voracious appetites. You can easily cut this recipe in half.

Be warned...this is not a healthy recipe. This is a once in a while, treat yourself recipe. It would probably make Paula Deen proud.

Cheesy Cream Sauce (or soup)
1 cup butter
6 cloves of garlic, minced
1 medium onion, minced
12 tbsp flour
5 cups of milk
1 container of Knorr Homestyle Chicken Stock (4 in each package)
a large handful of shredded Colby Jack cheese (about a cup)
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium low heat.
  2. Add minced garlic and minced onions to butter and saute until onions and garlic soften.
  3. Add flour to melted butter and make a roux.
  4. Add milk and Knorr Homestyle Chicken stock. Stir gently until roux dissolves. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until it starts to thicken.
  5. Dump in cheese. Stir until cheese melts completely.
  6. Salt and pepper to taste.
This soup/cream sauce tastes divine. It would be fabulous over broccoli or cauliflower. It would be divine with chunks of potato and crumbled bacon. It is awesome.
