    White sauce is very easy to make, if thats what you need?

    1. In a small, heavy saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over low heat.
    2. Blend 2 tablespoons of flour into the melted butter.
    3. Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
    4. Cook over low heat, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes. Cooking for this length of time will minimize 'flour' taste.
    5. Slowly add 1 cup of milk, stirring constantly.
    6. Continue cooking slowly until smooth and thickened.
    7. For thin white sauce, follow the instructions above, but use 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of flour. Thin white sauce is used in cream soups.
    8. For thick white sauce, follow the instructions above, but use 3 tablespoons of butter and 3 tablespoons of flour. Thick white sauce is used in souffl├ęs.
    9. For heavy white sauce, follow the instructions above, but use 4 tablespoons of butter and 4 tablespoons of flour. Heavy white sauce is used as a binder for croquettes.
    Tips:

    1. To make the standard B├ęchamel, after adding the milk to the medium white sauce recipe add 1 small onion studded with 3 cloves, a bay leaf, and a grating of nutmeg.
    2. Light stock, cream, or a combination may be used in place of the milk.
    3. Add more flavor by seasoning with celery salt, nutmeg, a teaspoon of lemon juice, onion juice, or sherry, or a few tablespoons of chopped chives or parsley .
    4. I like adding minced garlic to mine for shrimp or chicken alfredo.


    • Heavy saucepan
    • 2 tbsp butter
    • 2 tbsp flour
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1 cup milk

    Thank you, that is helpful information. But I'd still like that particular recipe from that particular cookbook, if someone here has it and will share. I saw that cookbook at a school book fair, cannot find it at the local book stores nor at my library.

    I was in the same situation the other day. I looked for a long time and could not find the book I had seen. In my experince though it will be online somewhere. It may not be exactly the same but it will be around. The one I found was on http://www.mydish.co.uk/chicken-recipes. Hit up the major food websites and I'm sure you'll get lucky :)
