Instructions

  1. In a large stock pot, melt butter over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onion and sauté until soft (4-5 minutes).
  3. Add the flour and using a whisk, blend in the flour until the mixture turns a golden brown colour (5 minutes).
  4. Add the Half & Half slowly stirring constantly to ensure mixture is smooth.
