DIRECTIONS

  • In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook 2 minutes to cook away the raw taste of the flour.
  • Add the milk all at once. Stir well, and continue heating until mixture comes to a boil. It will thicken as it heats.
  • Season to taste with salt and white pepper.
  • To make Veloute Sauce: Substitute the chicken stock for the milk.
  • To make Cheese Sauce: Stir in shredded cheese of choice into the cooked Basic White Sauce and stir until melted.
