Quick easy to make and tastes so good have been looking for this for a while and never could quite make it like my mum. i think this is as close as i'm going to get. cut down the butter by half and used whole wheat flour and through in some chill flakes for a bit of spice so good!

So simple AND so delicious! For the spices, I used a gourmet seasoning salt with herbs. I also added some capers (1/4 cup) to give it some zing. We'll be eating this with tuna cakes tonight. Agree this is an everyday/anytime recipe. Thanks, CQ!
