Homemade White Sauce Recipes

BASIC WHITE SAUCE RECIPE

2 TBS butter
2 TBS flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk

In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Blend the flour into the melted butter and add the salt. Cook over low, stirring for 4 to 5 minutes to eliminate the "flour taste." Slowly whisk in the milk, constantly whisking and cooking until smooth and thick.  Add cheese, cooked sausage or chopped chipped beef to put over toast.





THIN WHITE SAUCE

Use 1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of flour



THICK WHITE SAUCE

Use 3 tablespoons of butter
3 tablespoons of flour




HEAVY WHITE SAUCE

Use 4 tablespoons of butter
4 tablespoons of flour


All of the above recipes make 1 cup of sauce.








Silky Béchamel Sauce from Scratch

5 TBS homemade unsalted butter
4 TBS flour
4 cups milk
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg

In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over medium-low heat until melted. Add the flour and stir until smooth. Over medium heat, cook until the mixture turns a light, golden sandy color, about 6 to 7 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the milk in a separate pan until just about to boil. Add the hot milk to the butter mixture 1 cup at a time, whisking continuously until very smooth. Bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes, stirring constantly, then remove from heat. Season with salt and nutmeg, and set aside until ready to use.


For standard Béchamel Sauce:
After adding the milk to the medium white sauce recipe, place one small onion that is studded with 3 cloves, a bay leaf, and a grating of nutmeg or cinnamon. This makes 4 cups of sauce.
