This has been on my holiday tables for many years. This can be made a day or two ahead of time and just heat and serve when you are ready. This makes a lot of sauce...but it's the best part. You can easily add green peas and mushrooms....or crumbled bacon? This can even be finished as a casserole with a bread crumb topping....possibilities are endless :o) the way if you add 2 cups(8oz) of shredded cheddar it makes and awesome cheese sauce for baked macaroni and cheese or to serve over veggies.
