A lot of them call for cream of mushroom/chicken soup mixed with mayonnaise as a sauce, which sounds kind of gross to me anyway. It gets baked into casseroles. I am looking through NT for ideas for subs. The Sour Cream Sauce on p 140 sounds like it could be good, has anyone tried cooking it into a casserole? Other ideas for a fairly easy sauce that will have some flavor but be generic enough to not overwhelm the rest of the dish?
I make my own with raw milk..
I never measure anything just pour or add till it seems right..
Some onion, some garlic, salt, pepper, mushroom bits, some onion, raw milk, and a good size spoonfull of butter.
Add little bits of flour to thicken it up.

This one sounds really good TF-wise but not very simple for mass cooking:
This one looks good, maybe the flour should be replaced?
Sautee some chopped onion in a little oil until soft. Add your X (mushrooms for cream of mushrooms, chicken for cream of chicken, celery for cream of celery, etc.) and sautee it a bit with salt and pepper. Stir in some starch (flour, potato, rice flour, etc.) to make a roux, let it cook a couple minutes, then add milk to the proper consistency.

I am so glad the op asked this question. So many slow cooker "recipes" seem to revolve around a can of soup. It never seemed to me to be much of a recipe if it called for a can of soup. Now I know what to substitute for that.
