  • 3 tbsp Butter Unsalted
  • 3 tbsp All-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Whole milk
  • 1 tsp Salt To taste
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper To taste


  • Heat butter in a nonstick saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add flour and whisk until combined.Let it cook and bubble for 1-2 minutes, but keep a close eye and don't let it burn and become brown.
  • Add milk gradually, while whisking constantly.
  • Continue cooking and whisking until mixture becomes thick and smooth.
  • Remove from heat and mix in salt and pepper. Enjoy!


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Tastes best when served immediately but leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days and reheated over stovetop. You will need to add more milk to thin it out again.
