Basic White Sauce

2 Tablespoons butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups milk

1 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg (optional)

Melt your butter in your pre-warmed double boiler. Add the flour and stir well. Gradually whisk in 1 cup milk. Whisk constantly to avoid lumps. Add salt, pepper, and nutmeg (if desired). Mix well. Add the final cup of milk and whisk well. Simmer until smooth and thick.

You can use this sauce to create:

Cheese Sauce: Add 1 cups shredded sharp or extra sharp cheddar cheese, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon paprika, and 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper. Mix well until smooth and thick.

Beef or Chicken Gravy: Slowly whisk in beef or chicken stock until your sauce reaches your desired consistency.
