White Sauce (or Bechamel Sauce)
In a microwave jug melt the butter until frothy, add the flour and salt and whisk. Microwave for 20 seconds to cook out the flour. Add a small amount of milk and whisk until you get a creamy even consistency. Whisk in the remaining milk and cheese. Microwave for 30 seconds and whisk, repeat until nice and thick. If the mixture gets too thick whilst standing, add a bit more milk and whisk. Perfect for lasagna or served over chicken or corned beef.
Onion Sauce (Variation of White Sauce)
In a small saucepan, boil a cup of water and the onion together until the onion is cooked through and soft. Add the butter and the milk and cook for another few minutes. In a small cup make a paste with the cornflour and a tiny amount of water. Add to onion mixture and cook on low until the desired consistency. Is wonderful served on corned beef.
