2 Tbsp. flour

1 c. milk or broth

salt and pepper to taste

Measure milk into serving bowl (remember this recipe makes only 1 cup gravy). Increase recipe as needed, allowing 1/2 cup per person.

" For Basic White Sauce: Use margarine instead of shortening. Add sliced boiled eggs to make Creamed Eggs to serve over hot biscuits.

For Cheese Sauce: Add 1 tablespoon choppe-d onion to Basic White Sauce recipe and 4 slices of American cheese. A few drops of food coloring (3 yellow plus 1 red) will make it more attractive. Pour over cooked macaroni, top with buttered bread cubes, seasoned with garlic and toast under broi ler. Or use this sauce extensi ve ly wi th Mexican dishes or vegetable toppings.
