Butter - 2 Tablespoons
Flour - 2 Tablespoons
Milk - 1 Cup
I'm making a double batch, so just multiply all of the quantities by 2. Easy-peasey.
|Milk, Flour, Salt, Pepper and Butter - They're common ingredients that you should all have in your kitchen.|
Start by melting your butter in a sauce pan. For now, keep the heat at or below medium on the range. You don't want to burn your butter.
After a couple of minutes, this...
Add your flour and mix it in. I recommend a silicone spatula to get at all the corners of the dish. In a minute or two, you'll have a nice, frothy blend.
It'll go from this...
|Again, keep the heat at or below medium on your range to keep the mix from burning and sticking to the bottom.|
Now, mix in your milk. Once the milk is in, turn up your heat. Keep that spatula moving and the sauce will stay smooth. Stop mixing and you'll get lumps.
|Mixing, mixing mixing...|
|Okay, time to turn down the heat.|
For the next couple of minutes, just let the sauce simmer while you keep mixing. Things will start to thicken up pretty quick. The longer you simmer, the thicker the sauce will be. Go ahead and add a couple pinches of salt, pepper and any other spices you like.
|I've been experimenting with coarse Kosher salt, but good ol' Morton's works just fine.|
|Sweet. We're good to go.|
|Here's The Wife's plate.|
|I added a little ground sausage to mine. Yum.|
That's it for now. Good luck in the kitchen and have a great weekend.
