Budget.Gourmet's picture
Ingredients
  Milk 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Yellow onion 3 Tablespoon, chopped
  Bay leaf 1
  Cayenne pepper To Taste
  Butter 1⁄10 Pound (1/2 Stick)
  Flour 3 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
Directions

Bring the milk to a simmer.
Add the yellow onion, bay leaf, and cayenne pepper.
Simmer for a few minutes, and strain the milk stock.
Return to the stove.
Melt the butter, and stir in the flour.
Remove the milk from its burner and stir in the flour-butter mixture.
Continue to simmer, stirring until thick, about 10 minutes.
Add salt.
This fine white sauce is good for creamed meat dishes, fish, and I put it over chicken before saking it.
