Then make a few batches of mornay sauce with different cheeses.


You might consider non-cheese sauces too, since there are dairy allergic folks out there.

Tomato sauce
peanut sauce
Mushroom sauce

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

Thank you so much! I would like to make these the day before and then warm them back up for the party. Does this type of sauce store well like that?

A nice Bechamel Sauce can be dressed to serve your needs.
When adding cheese it becomes a Mornay Sauce.
A basic Roux (flour and butter, equal parts), add milk, touch of nutmeg, blend in cheese of choice, season with white pepper , salt to taste.

One thing you need to remember is the cheese sauce can tend to thicken the longer it sits. You may need to watch the temperature and keep some milk on hand to thin out the sauces. Or make the second batch a little runnier than the first so when adding to the serving dishes it will even out. I'm talking from experience with nacho cheese sauce in crockpots at band fundraisers. What you serve them in may change that. I'd want to do a trial before doing it for your reception. Make up the sauces and serve them in the kind of dishes you want and invite a bunch of friends over to taste it and try it out.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

cheese, macaroni, other, recipe

Mac N Cheese Sauce - Make Ahead Recipe? Hi All! =) We are having a Mac N Cheese bar for our reception. The idea is to have a couple different types of sauces in chaffing dishes and allow our guests to choose which sauce they want to put other their pasta with some different toppings. I was wondering if anyone had a good recipe (or two) for a make ahead cheese sauce for mac n cheese that would keep well in a chaffing dish. Thanks! Carla =) 3 stars 1 reviews
