Easy White Sauce for Casseroles and Gratinées

Easy White Sauce for Casseroles and Gratinées

All you have to do is mix everything together. You can make smooth and creamy white sauce without any lumps in no time. It's the ultimate simple recipe.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Flour (cake flour or bread flour)
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
200-250 ml
Soup stock cube
1 cube
Salt and pepper
to taste


1. Add all the ingredients except salt and pepper to a deep frying pan.
2. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whisk until thick.
3. Season it with salt and pepper and it's done.
4. Addendum: since it's a pain washing the whisk, I use a fork instead when I make a small amount of sauce. It still comes out smooth.
5. You can change the thickness of the sauce by the amount of the milk, so it can be used in a variety of dishes, for example. Use less milk to make thicker white sauce for cream croquettes, or add more milk to make a cream soup.

Story Behind this Recipe

You can make this white sauce in no time. I add bacon and ketchup into leftover rice, and pour over white sauce to make an easy doria, or make a small amount of the sauce to make gratin with toasted bread, or use it in a bento box. Sometimes I add more milk to make a thinner sauce, and pour it over omurice as well.
