White Sauce in the Microwave

Wednesday is Recipe Day on CookingManager.Com.

You can use this simple white sauce on its own or add spices, herbs or vegetables. It’s a good base for a casserole or cream soup (pictured) when you don’t want to buy the canned variety.

This version of basic white sauce comes from The Well-Filled Microwave Cookbook, by Susanna Hoffman and Victoria Wise.


3 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons flour

1½ cups milk

¼ teaspoon salt
