I use evaporated milk in pumpkin pie, but that's about it. I too find the taste by itself sort of disagreeable.

But it is a good low-fat alternative to cream, if you don;t mind the taste or can hide it in the dish.

How about a homemade Bechamel? It is quite easy to make especially if you have a double boiler. I have seen all kinds of recipe with added ingredients but this simple version works great for us, very versatile, and depending on the recipe you can adjust the recipe by adding some cheese, nutmeg or other spices....

Bechamel Sauce
2 tablespoons butter
1-1/2 tablespoons flour
3/4 cup milk

In a heavy saucepan or double boiler melt the butter over low hear; do not brown. Add the flour gradually, stirring constantly to keep the mixture smooth. (If you use a double boiler, blend the flour with a little milk thoroughly then add to the butter.) Do not allow the flour to cook. Once all the flour is blended in, gradually pour in the milk, stirring constantly with a wire whisk to keep the sauce perfectly smooth. Move the whisk around in the pan as your stir to blend the sauce at the bottom and sides. Once all the milk has been added, add a little salt and cook over low heat until the sauce thickens. Blend thoroughly.

Thank-you Ish, that makes sense, the first time I tried Irish fudge I thought it was a lot grainer that what I was accustomed to. I make mine with condensed milk and it is soooo creamy, smooth and sweet (favourite flavours include maple pecan/walnut and chocolate cherry). I like a most fudge, but I know that others prefer their's on the dry side Do you have a TNT Scottish style fudge recipe?
