    To stop you buying packets! These are really good for people who don't like making a roux or usually end up with lumpy sauces.

    I posted this on the Kenwood Chef thread but any type of blender / liquidiser will do so thought I'd post it seperately:

    White Sauce
    1 oz butter
    1 oz flour
    1/2 pint milk

    Place all ingredients in the liquidser and blend for 30 seconds on max. speed. Pour into a saucepan, bring to a boil and boil for 2 mins, stirring continuously until thickened. Season to taste. (I add 1-2 tsp. of veg or chicken stock powder at blending stage as well.)

    Parsley sauce: add a few sprigs of parsley at blending stage, cook as above
    Onion sauce: add 1 large onion roughly chopped, at blending stage, cook as above

    Cheese sauce: add 2-3 ounces cubed at blending stage, cook as above
    (I also add 1 tsp. mustard powder, really yummy for cauliflower cheese!)

    1 pint milk
    3 ounces sugar
    1 egg
    1 ounce butter
    1 ounce cornflour
    1/2 to 1 tsp vanilla essence

    Put all ingredients into liquidiser. Blend for 30 secs. Pour into a saucepan and cook over a medium heat until mixture thickens and boils, stirring constantly.

    Yum - this is all my Bird's fan dh will eat now.
