|This is a basic white sauce that you can use in hundreds of other recipes. I mostly use it in casseroles but it can lead to other sauces. It is considered a “Mother” Sauce because other sauces are made from it.
What You will Need:
2 TB Flour
2 TB Butter
1 c. Milk
Salt and Pepper
What You Do:
1. Melt the Butter in a small sauce pan
2. Add the flour and whisk for about 5 minutes.
(This takes the raw taste out of the flour)
3. Add the milk a little at a time and cook and whisk until
it is smooth and thickened ( 5 min.)
4. Add salt and pepper as desired
To make it thicker, start with 3 TB of butter and flour.
To make it thinner, start with 1 TB of butter and flour.
You can easily make multiples of this recipe just add more flour or mild as desired.
