My husband bought a turkey fryer. We have had three turkeys since Thanksgiving. We have another turkey in our fridge ready to fry. I didn’t want more turkey for Christmas so we had ham. I have made mashed potatoes to go with ham, but unless my aunt is around to make ham gravy I’d rather have hash-brown casserole. I remember this casserole from my dairy days. So creamy and cheesy and greasy and yummy. Turns out it is pretty easy to make dairy-free and it is still really yummy! Even my husband loved it.
I did not measure ingredients while I was making my white sauce, I never do. I put some margarine or other fat in a sauce pan, stir in flour until I have a thick roux, then I add milk or broth until I have the thickness I want. Season to taste. Here is a recipe that has real measurements and maybe it is even kitchen tested. Only thing is it isn’t dairy-free, so substitutions are needed. I don’t know if cow milk makes sauces thicker because this recipe seems to have not enough flour and too much liquid. Guess I’ll try it and see if it works.
