• 2-4 garlic cloves minced (depending on how preference- I make mine with 4 small cloves)
• 2 tbsp butter
• 2 tbsps all-purpose flour
• 2 cups heavy whipping cream (16 ounces)
• 1 tsp olive oil
• Sprinkle of garlic salt ( about ¼ - ½ tsp)
• salt and pepper (to taste with your preference)
• Precook a package of bacon and chop for topping

1. Heat large skillet on medium, add olive oil and saute’ garlic gloves
2. Add butter into sauce pan over garlic and oil
3. Once butter is melted, add 2 tablespoons of flour and stir with a whisk to prevent any lumps.
4. Add garlic salt, and a little salt and pepper. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.
5. Pour 1 cup of heavy whipping cream into the butter-flour mixture and continue stirring. It will start thickening in less than 1 minute.

11. Makes 2 cups of Cream Sauce.

Personal Notes:
I serve this with fresh shredded parmesan, bacon crumbles and whatever sautéed protein on top. Jake loves garlic shrimp or sliced kielbasa sausage sautéed with onions (browned to a crisp). Of course the onions don’t go on the kid plates but he loves the flavor in the sausage. Eric cleans his plate whenever I make it so he seems to approve. 
