DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over a moderate heat.
  • Add flour and beat until smooth, remove from the heat.
  • Add milk, a little at a time, and beat well.
  • Bring to the boil and cook gently for 2-3 minutes, stirring all the time. This completes the cooking of the starch in the flour.
  • Rich White Sauce: Add an extra 2 oz butter to the completed sauce after it has cooled slightly.
