Basic Mornay Sauce and Variations

Mornay sauces are a great filling for crepes, vol-au-vents and crustades. Just add the variation ingredients to the basic cheese bechamel sauce and either freeze to be used at a later date, or store in the fridge until required. They'll keep in the fridge for 3-5 days and in the freezer between 2-3 months. They are best reheated either before placing in the holding vessel or after and heated in the oven. Try some of these variations below - Chicken & Mushroom Mornay Sauce, Ham & Cheese Mornay Sauce, Tuna & Mushroom Mornay Sauce, Sweet Corn Mornay Sauce and Prosciutto & Parmesan Mornay Sauce.



  1. Make the bechamel sauce.
  2. Fold the variation ingredients through the sauce (precook the ingredients first if it indicates so).
  3. Serve as required.
