White Sauce - a Cooking Staple

This recipe was a cooking staple in my family growing up. I think we put EVERYTHING into a white sauce. Not very creative. But, hey, it worked!


  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 Cup Milk


  1. Put butter in sauce pan and gradually add in flour. 
  2. Then slowly add the milk and stir steadily over a moderate heat until the sauce boils. Add the salt and pepper. 
  3. If a thicker sauce is desired, use 2 tablespoons flour and butter.
