Homemade Alfredo Sauce Recipe
This recipe makes 2 cups sauce.
4 Tablespoons butter
4 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups half and half (I use whole milk sometimes if I don’t have half and half)
In a sauce pan, melt butter. Stir in flour and heat until bubbly. Add the salt and pepper, and sprinkle in onion salt and garlic salt. Stir in half and half, stirring constantly with whisk until sauce slightly thickens. Use the sauce for the Chicken Alfredo Bake or serve over spaghetti or noodles.
