Shirley J Review and Giveaway




A few weeks ago Shirley J sent me some of their Universal Sauce to try out. I had heard lots of good things about this cream based sauce and couldn't wait to try it!

My sister, Julie and I decided to experiment with a few recipes. We made Gnocchi Gratin, Alfredo Chicken Pizza and Creamy Baked Potato Soup. I couldn't believe how easy the sauce made the cooking.



Universal Sauce is a cream based sauce that serves as the foundation to countless recipes. All you have to do is add water. It was super easy to make and was completely lump free. We didn't have to worry about having flour, butter, milk, etc. on hand.

I wanted to learn more about the Universal Sauce so I took one of the free cooking classes at the Shirley J head quarters. It was such a great class and the chef was very fun and knowledgeable! He cooked chicken enchiladas, tomato soup and macaroni and cheese from the Universal Sauce in less than 45 minutes. They were all delicious.

I think the Universal Sauce will become a staple in my pantry and food storage. It's so easy to use and it's 1/4 the calories as a regular cream sauce. It also has a shelf life of 20+ years.

I can't wait to try out their other products!

You can buy Shirley J products on the Shirley J website, through an Executive Chef or in their store.
