From time to time recipes will appear here listing "white sauce mix" as an ingredient.  Below is the formula I use for white sauce mix.  It's the basic ingredient in most of our cream soups, like seafood bisque, & summer vegetable bisque.  Because it's made with nonfat milk, it is better for you than adding heavy cream or half and half to your favorite cream soup recipes.

Categories : Sauces Mixes
2 C Instant Nonfat Dry Milk
1 C Unbleached Flour
1 C Butter or Margarine
2 ts Salt
1. In a large bowl combine dry milk, flour, and salt.
2. Mix well. With a pastry blender cut in butter or margarine until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
3. Lightly pack in a large airtight container. Store in refrigerator. Use within 2 months. Makes about 1 quart of mix.
Use 1/2 cup WHITE SAUCE MIX and 1 cup of cool water. Combine in a small sauce pan (for thinner white sauce decrease the mix to 1/4 cup or for thicker white sauce increase mix to 3/4 cup). Cook over low heat until smooth, tirring constantly. Season with pepper, herbs, and spices. Makes about 1 1/2 cups of sauce.
Substitute milk, tomato juice or chicken or beef stock for all or part of the water. Cheese Sauce: Add 1/2 to
1 cup Shredded Cheddar cheese after mixture thickens. Stir until cheese is melted.
