I really wanted my husband to try goat cheese, so the other night I asked him if he wanted scalloped potatoes in a cheese sauce; he said 'yes,' and this is what I made. Afterwards he said I would definitely need to make this again, as he had four helpings. When I told him that it was goat cheese all he could say was 'REALLY?' and kept eating. I would say this was a winner; how about you? Just pour finished sauce over your choice of pasta, potatoes, or whatever you like.

This is a thick sauce. It is ment to be put over potatoes for scalloped potato or a mac & cheese (which gets a thicker sauce). The onions were suppose to say optional next to them. My family loves onions with everything. So if you are looking for a thinner sauce for things like over chicken then definitely use less flour the 1T for every 1 cup of milk. Read More

This was a very thick gloppy sauce. I also found the diced onions in the sauce not to my liking. I added more milk and pureed the sauce to smooth.. much better although i didnt have any more goat cheese so that flavor was diluted by the additional milk. I posted two photos.. one with the thicker sauce and one with much more milk and pureed. I realize the recipe says milk too taste but doubling the milk is way more of adjustment and also results in less goat cheese flavor.. Read More

I made this sauce and kept it thick enough to use as a pizza sauce. I topped it with grilled steak & peppers, spinach, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. My kids were begging me to make more. Read More

This is thick and rich. I used plain goat cheese and added a teaspoon of garlic and a quarter teaspoon of dried chives to liven things up. This is bound to become a replacement for alfredo for me, as it's a less heavy on cream. Highly recommended. Read More

It was quick and easy. I added some yellow orange and red peppers as well as chicken and more milk. I used bruschetta goat cheese (I'm sure any type of spiced goat cheese would work). All was placed on a bed of pasta. Pretty decent. Read More

So I find myself in need of a cheese sauce to stretch my expensive goat cheese for the healthy enchiladas I am making. I LOVE ALLRECIPIES - you guys are my go to. Duh! Karrie (I hope that is how you spell your name) you helped me think outside of the box! A quick whip of goat cheese, hot water and coconut flour with some salt and pepper made the perfect compliment to my dish! Thank you so much. Read More
