I have been on a mission to re-learn how to make mornay sauce.
I used to work at the cutest little tavern when I was much younger. It was an upper class english restaraunt-pub close to where Farrah Faucett grew up.
The Welsh Rarebit and the Crab Meat Mornay were my two favorite dishes there.
The chef there gave me a generic recipe' for mornay sauce, without specifics of course. I wrote it on a register tape. I still have it.
So I have been on this quest to find the perfect mornay recipe and turned to re-aquaint myself with the Pirates Pantry.
And much like MInnesail found it to have msg in the shrimp mornay recipe, and 1/2 tea Accent in the crabmeat mornay, I never used those two recipe's on the account of that, but I think you can just leave the msg or the accent out of the recipe'.
However, in the pursuit of the perfect mornay sauce I did a search on you tube and feel I can now make this awesome sauce without any hesitation. I like that you can experiment with the cheeses. but don't forget the nutmeg.
I love this sauce so much I think I am going to put it in the most versatile recipe's thread.
