Basic White/Cream Sauce

Since a lot of my recipes use a basic white sauce, I thought I'd better post this so I can just link to it instead of typing it out all the time :)


1 tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. flour
1 c. milk

Directions: Melt butter in medium skillet over low heat. Add flour and salt and stir to paste. Slowly add milk until desired consistency is reached.

Makes 1 cup of creamy white sauce (thin)..

FOR VARIATIONS: MEDIUM: Use 2 tablespoons butter and flour for each cup of milk. THICK: Use 4 tablespoons of butter and flour for each cup of milk. CHEESE SAUCE: Add at least 1/2 cup of any cheese to the Basic White Sauce, stir til melted and blended well.
