- 2 tablespoons margarine or bacon
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper (scant)
- 1/2 cup tap water
- 1/2 cup milk
Get out a 1 quart sauce pan. In it, melt
the margarine or bacon grease. Use a fork or
whisk to stir in the flour. Stir until the
flour is dissolved completely in the fat.
Add the sugar, salt, and a scant 1/4
teaspoon pepper. Gradually whisk in the tap
water, and then the milk. Cook and stir
until thickened and bubbly. Boil for a full
minute, and then serve hot.
Meat or vegetable broth may replace the
water if desired. This recipe is easily
doubled. Good with any supper dish, over
potatoes or even on noodles.
