- In a small saucepan, melt the butter on low heat.
- Once melted, gradually add the flour, stirring constantly to avoid lumps, about 2 minutes.You should end up with a thick but still stirrable roux (A roux is basically just equal part butter and flour stirred over some heat and then you add your liquid ingredients to it. It's a thickener and can be used to start all sorts of cream sauces).
- Add 1/4 cup milk slowly to the roux and cook over low heat. Stir until it thickens, about 2 minutes.

I love this site -- recipes for the real world and the people who live in it! <br> <br>I'm currently an at-home mom and a busy volunteer with three children. I'm encouraged by the number of recipes on recipezaar that will help me expand my children's palate beyond chicken and noodles. <br> <br>I am eager to reduce the sugar my kids consume and increase the amount of fiber. I've been experimenting with substituting whole wheat flour where I can with some positive results. I look forward to discovering more recipes that can be modified so that I can sneak more whole grain into my family's diet!
