This is super easy! I just listed the basics. You can always change it up by adding other ingredients. You may want to add more salt if you prefer.

    WHITE SAUCE: Melt butter at 200-212°F in saucepan, microwave or double boiler. Add flour to butter and whisk well to blend. Gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly until smooth. Allow to cook over medium-low heat until sauce simmers and thickens to desired consistency. Add salt, to taste. If you prefer a richer sauce, use 2 tbsp. flour and 2 tbsp. butter.
