This is for Claire in Albany. White sauce is a most in the south, especially Alabama, when you are having chicken. Here is a recipe I use. I do not like mine runny, but on the thicker side. Also, we use this after the chicken is fried, smoked or grilled.

White Sauce for Chicken Recipe

1 cup mayo(I use Dukes)
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar(can add more for thinning mayo mixture)
Good splash of lemon juice
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder (opt.)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (more if you like things hot)

Mix altogether. Place in containers by your plate to dip you chicken in. Love at first bite!

For Claire in Albany. If this is too "white" to be the sauce your husband wants, maybe he wants the "clear" sauce that is mostly vinegar & pepper. If so, we do have that one & will send it. But do try this one because it's really good !

Big Bob Gibson's Bar-B-Q White Sauce Recipe
done Decatur Alabama style via Chris Lilly

For 2 cups:
1 c. Hellman's Mayonnaise
1/2 c. white vinegar
1/4 c. apple juice
1 tsp. ground horseradish (the real one not the cream sauce)
1 tsp. coarse black pepper
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

Mix all together. Chill. Use as a marinade, baste, or dipping sauce. Decatur's finest is to grill chickens to golden brown, slather with sauce & cut up to serve. We also used it as a sauce on pulled pork on Kaiser buns & that is great too. Easy to multiply if you need more.

Speaking of sauces I hope one of y'all can tell me how to clone, copy, or just come close to the sauce with bourbon in it that is on the mahi mahi on Bubba Gump's menu. It is called "Bourbon St. Mahi Mahi". The fish is grilled & then the fish with lots of sauce is served over mashed potatoes. It is just delish & I really want to make it at home as it's hard for us to get to our closest Bubba Gump restaurant. Please let us know, I'll be surprised if one or more of you haven't tried to copy this ! Thanks in advance.

Sharon's Chocolate Crescent Roll Dessert Recipe. It has been temporarily removed from the site. It still has problems with the recipe that need corrected.

For Claire:
There are many variations of white BBQ sauce just as there are for the tomato type. It is popular in the south and is used more as a dipping sauce for chicken fingers, French fries, cheese sticks etc. It can be using on grilled chicken as a final baste before serving but it is not a baking type sauce. A basic recipe is as follows but it is a recipe you need to adapt to your own liking with seasoning. I like to add garlic and sometimes a bit of dill weed.

White Barbecue Sauce Recipe

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup vinegar ( I prefer apple cider) but any type is fine
1 teaspoon prepared horseradish.
1/2 teaspoon EACH of salt and pepper
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper or a dash of hot sauce.
1 tablespoon of sugar it optional.

Mix and let stand in refrigerator a few hours before using.

This may be very close to the recipe that Stephanie lost (2/8 newsletter). She did not mention her recipe having peanut butter chips in it and she remembered melting the butter or margarine as the first step. I think you could omit the chips in this recipe, but have never tried doing that. You do not need to frost these brownies. I hope this helps.

In the 2/11 newsletter JCM WNY asked for cup of soup recipes or where she could buy the product, as many stores no longer carry the ones she likes. Amazon does seem to sell a variety of these soups by different manufactures, so you should check them out to see if the flavors and price are what you desire. The following recipe is from our great leader, Nancy Rogers.

Trying to find a recipe for meatloaf with Bisquick in the ingredients, made in a cast iron skillet with potato wedges around it. A friend told me about it and said she got the recipe off the Bisquick box years ago but has lost it.
Thank you, Betty in Michigan

Betty, I am pretty sure that this is the exact one you want, it came off of an old Bisquick box. Unfortunately, the directions seems to be incomplete, as there is nothing about the meatloaf itself. Maybe you can make it like any other meatloaf???
bill, Alb.

Skillet Meatloaf Dinner Recipe

2 teaspoons instant beef bouillon or 2 bouillon cubes
3/4 cup boiling water
1 lb lean ground beef
3/4 cup Bisquick baking mix
1/2 cup crushed saltine crackers
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons catsup
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 -3 medium potatoes, cut in wedges (see note)
4 slices American cheese, cut crosswise into halves
1 (4 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained

I microwave the potatoes whole until they are approximately 1/2 to 3/4 done to assure they are cooked when meal is completed; Then I cut them into wedges and place on top of meatloaf. Dissolve bouillon in water; mix 1/4 cup of the bouillon and the remaining ingredients except potatoes, cheese and mushrooms. Pat mixture in 9" skillet to within 1" of edge. Pour remaining bouillon around edge. Place potato wedges on meatloaf in spoke fashion. Cover and cook over low heat until potatoes are tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Arrange cheese on potatoes; sprinkle with mushrooms.

Trying to find a recipe for meatloaf with Bisquick in the ingredients, made in a cast iron skillet with potato wedges around it. A friend told me about it and said she got the recipe off the Bisquick box years ago but has lost it.
Thank you, Betty in Michigan

These are packets made on the grill, but I can't see why you could not do them in the oven just as well. Would have to watch them for time and temperature.

Grilled Meat Loaf Meal Packs Recipe

1-1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 package (1 oz) onion recipe and dip soup mix (from 2-oz box)
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup Progresso™ plain bread crumbs
1/3 cup ketchup
1 bag (1 lb 4 oz) refrigerated new potato wedges
3 cups ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots
Fresh parsley, if desired

Directions I would make them for the oven, and "Bake until loaves are no longer pink in center ,and meat thermometer inserted in center of loaves reads 160°F." Try an oven temperature like any other meatloaf.

Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 6 (18 x 10-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray. In medium bowl, mix beef, dry soup mix, egg, milk and bread crumbs. Shape into 6 loaves, 4 x 2 1/2 x 1 inch. Place 1 loaf on each foil sheet; top each with about 1 tablespoon of the ketchup. Place about 1/2 cup potatoes and 1/2 cup carrots around each loaf.

Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.

Place packets on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium heat 25 to 30 minutes, rotating packets 1/2 turn after 15 minutes, until vegetables are tender and meat thermometer inserted in center of loaves reads 160ºF. To serve, cut large X across top of each packet; carefully fold back foil to allow steam to escape. Garnish with parsley.

Expert Tips
Fresh new potatoes, cut into wedges, can be used instead of the refrigerated potatoes. Because the refrigerated potatoes are partially cooked, microwave the fresh ones for 4 to 6 minutes before adding them to the packets. Make these packets up to 24 hours in advance. Pop them on the grill when you are ready to eat. Although these hearty packets can be a complete meal, a crisp mixed-greens salad would be a nice addition.
