  • Melt butter over a low heat (do not burn of the sauce will be nutty flavor). With a wisk, mix in the cream cheese and wisk until compeletly combined. (At first it will seem like it won't combine, but keep stiring until you do). Once you have the butter and cream cheese mixed, pour in the milk (Cream or Half and Half) the flour and continue to wisk. Once the mixture heats up and the cream cheese mixture and milk have combined into a smooth cream, add salt, peper and parmasian cheese and stir until combined. Let sit for a few minutes to thicken.

E.) Easy homemade alfredo sauce recipe


Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 cups milk or half & half
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1-2 cloves garlic (mashed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Tip: If you don't have fresh garlic, 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder can be substituted for 1 clove garlic. So, use between 1/8 and 1/4 teaspoons of garlic powder.

  • Tip: I often use skim milk to make a low fat version of the sauce. However the more fat in the milk, the creamier the sauce will be. Restaurants usually use whole milk, half & half, or a combination of whole milk and half & half.
Directions:
  • Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat. Stir the flour into the butter. Add a little milk and stir until the mixture is very smooth; Continue this process until you have added all of the milk and the mixture is smooth.
  • Tip: When cooking milk, always stir it. It burns very easily. Also, the heavier your pan the easier it will be to not burn your milk. Always cook on medium heat, not high.

  • Add Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, on medium heat until desired thickness is reached (remember that it will thicken a little more after you take it off the stove).
