“These are great for OAMC. Take these out of freezer and use them to make a white sauce or a cheese sauce.. You can add anything you would like to your basic cheese sauce and you can have a quick dinner in just minutes. I use more salt but that is a personal preference so be sure to taste your sauce and adjust salt to your taste.”
