Recipes that involve LOTS of milk?

Got milk that's expiring tommorow (as in, it smells off today, but can still be used raw). Looking for recipes that use a LOT of milk (and cooked, if you please), as I've got most of a gallon to get through...

        french toast

          But after making bechamel, what then?

        2. You can freeze it in small portions, and use for cakes, biscuits when you need it.

          1. 1) Make Fluffy Tapioca Pudding using the recipe on the Minute Tapioca box but double it and use 3 eggs. This will get rid of a quart of milk. 2) Make cheese sauce and freeze it for future use. To one stick of butter use 1/2 cup of flour, 1/2 tsp salt, and a quart of milk then stir in an 8-oz package of shredded sharp cheddar. If you have the freezer space, double or triple this as cheese sauce will always come in handy for potatoes au gratin, macaroni and cheese, hot sandwiches under the broiler, cauliflower au gratin, with leftover broccoli, etc.

            1. Homemade yogurt and Homemade buttermilk.
