Twelve Days of Sauce - Second Day

Don’s White Sauce was originally discovered in “Any Bozzo Can Cook” written by Sam and Gene of the Gilroy Garlic Festival.


This sauce is thick and creaming, warm and yummy, everything a good sauce should be.


Don’s White Sauce

 ½ cup butter
½ cup flour
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp white pepper
1 ¾ cup chicken broth
¼ cup white wine
2 cups ½ & ½
½ cup grated Parmigiano cheese
½ tsp freshly-grated nutmeg

Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium-low heat.  Add the flour and season with the salt and pepper.  Cook the flour, stirring constantly, for 2 – 3 minutes.  Combine the broth, the white wine and the ½ & ½.  Slowly whisk the liquid into the flour mixture and it will begin to thicken.  Remove from the heat, and stir the grated cheese and nutmeg.  Continue stirring until the cheese is melted.

As Don often says “Turn up the heat!”
