Remove from heat and serve. ***The instrructions say to make a medium cream sauce with butter, flour and milk. This is a béchamel (bay-shah-MEL) sauce, which is a French white sauce that can be made thin (1 tbsp each butter and flour to 1 cup milk), medium (2 tbsp each butter and flour to 1 cup milk), or thick (3 tbsp each butter and flour to 1 cup milk). You make the sauce by stiring the milk into a roux, which is made by slowly mixing the flour into the softened butter over very low heat.
