That’s no problem Bianca. Just check your jar but most will say 1tsp + 1 clove

If I was to use minced garlic instead of cloves would that work and what would the ratio be?

This sauce was ahhmazing! Wish I’d tried it sooner. I used it as a tuna Mornay sauce, and even my fussy kid licked her bowl! Definitely going to be a regular in our rotation.

Toward the beginning ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi, do you add the mustard at the beginning or towards the end of the cook?
Thanks in advance.

Most amazing garlic sauce Iโ€™ve ever had under my own roof!!
Now I didnโ€™t add the mustard sauce as we had none but wow this sauce left us speechless!

If you donโ€™t have mustard powder can you use mustard instead?
I have Dijon, seeded and mild English muffin, would any of those substitute okay?0

I would follow recipe exactly (without adding cheeses) as that’s how it’ intended to be done ๐Ÿ™‚
Also did you use “cooking cream” as listed?

Tried this tonight, the sauce split and it looks like there is way too much butter?
Followed the recipe but added Parmesan as I’d seen in the comments.
Any ideas?

Love this sauce! I have it over roast chicken. I add a little extra garlic. Yesterday I also added parmesan and some onion powder at the beginning. Canโ€™t wat for the seconds tonight!

That is fantastic to know!
Thanks Erica ๐Ÿ™‚

We had left over sauce. I froze it. Defrosted it today. As delicious as the day I made it.

Tried this tonight. Delicious. Even my 8 year old son liked it. He doesn’t like alot of sauce.

Delicious! Have been chasing a good garlic sauce for awhile now and this was a hit, added a little shredded cheese the second time making it which was yum also.
Went perfectly with the lemonade silverside ๐Ÿ˜‰
