DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium sauce pan simmer milk on medium-low heat.
  • Add the onion, bay leaf and cayenne. Simmer for a few minutes stirring constantly to prevent scorching.
  • Strain the milk into a bowl and discard the onion and bay leaf.
  • Melt the butter in the sauce pan and whisk in flour until thick, this is called the roux.
  • Stir in the milk and simmer until the desired consistancy is reached (5-10 mins). Sauce will thicken as it stands.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stir in peas if desired.
