step 1
Get a small sauce pan on the stove and start to melt the Butter (3 Tbsp) over medium-high heat. Whisk in the All-Purpose Flour (3 Tbsp) until you have a golden brown, thick roux. Slowly pour in the Milk (1 1/2 cups) while you keep whisking.
step 2
Add in the Salt (1 pinch), then let the sauce gently simmer on medium heat for 5-10 minutes, whisking it occasionally, until it is thick and luscious.
