Omg...this is one of my favorite go to recipes for so many different reasons. It's so versatile and it always seems to taste better each time you make it. From gravies to cheese sauce you really can't go wrong. You're so right about burning the flour Ruthep once that happens you pretty much-gotta start all over again. My favorite way to enjoy this sauce is simply plain over a fresh hot biscuit.

This is the base for my sauces. I make it all the time. It is really important not to have the heat too high and to stir almost non-stop so the butter won't brown and develop a burnt flavor. You can not cover that up. You add cheese and that flavor is still in the background. I have made this white sauce for years. The more you do it, the easier it is.
