Promise Me You Will Never Use Canned Cream Of Something Soup Again?

I will give you my very easy basic white sauce recipe.  But first you have to PROMISE.

 

Pinky swear?

 

It’s ok if you didn’t.  Once you make this for yourself, you won’t want to use Campbells Cream Of Overpriced And Full Of Sodium again.  And if you want to make it a cheese sauce? Just stir in cheese as you’re whisking.

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dash white pepper
1 cup milk
In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually whisk in the milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Use immediately or refrigerate.  If you make a casserole to stick in the fridge and bake later, this sauce will work fine. Makes about a cup of sauce.
