Southern White Gravy

dfafre

5 tbsp. unsalted butter
4 tbsp. all purpose flour
Approximately 2 cups whole milk
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Melt butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Add flour and combine. Add ¼ tsp salt and around 10 grinds pepper.

Stir until the flour is about the color of peanut butter and smells nutty. Add ½ of the milk and increase heat to medium.

Allow to come to a simmer, stirring constantly to avoid sticking. Add milk by quarter or half cups until gravy has thickened to desired consistency.

Add at least 10 more grinds pepper and another pinch of salt, to taste
