Used as a substitute for half and half in a recipe. Worked great! Thank you!

REVIEW: recipe rating
This worked well for what I was doing. We had dressed a wild turkey and marinated the turkey breast overnight to tenderize it. I baked the turkey breast and cut it into chunks when it was done. I did not have any heavy cream / light cream, so your recipe worked very well. I heated the milk and butter, added the cheeses and added it to the meat in a pot. I cooked it on low for about 15 minutes. Thanks for helping me out! :)

it worked quite well for what i was doing but you might want to include that the milk must not be too cool or the butter will harden and separate. also, how do you combine it? i was curious if it would not separate as easily if it were blended or something of the like. great recipe though for the chef in a pinch!
