"I’d like to know how you use powdered milk to make white sauce and how do you flavor it to replace creamed soups? It’s something I’ve always thought of doing. Thanks. "<p>
We have made white sauces as long as I can remember, but we never did it the traditional way as it takes alot of butter and is not so good for you. How I do it now, is mix 2 c. milk (or if i am using powdered milk, I make 2 cups powdered milk), 2 T. cornstarch, 1 t. salt, 1/4 t. pepper. Whip with wire whisk until smooth, heat in the microwave for 2 minutes, until thickened and bubbly, stirring often with wire whisk to prevent lumps. <p> Then I add spices to flavor it, usually a bit of garlic powder and some onion powder. If it is something like green bean casserole, that I am adding cheese to, then I do not add any butter, but sometimes you can add like a teaspoon for better flavor. This is fine in casseroles as often they have you add their own spices on top of the "cream of Mushroom soup" or whatever. I make Cheeseburger and Fries casserole which my boys love with this, it has cheese in it and needs no extra fat and tastes great with this plain white sauce.
