Now that you've mastered it on the stove...try the microwave - much quicker and tastes exactly the same. I use a glass jug and a whisk - used to always do it on the stove though until I got game. You just can't walk away from it still!
I do a mix that is generally easy to remember that is along the lines of 30g butter, 30g flour, 300mL milk or 60g butter, 60g flour and 600mL milk if you need a larger batch - but I haven't measured out the flour for a while as I just tend to put it in until I get the consistency I'm after.
You just reminded me to get the silverside out of the freezer for tomorrow night - THANK YOU!

I don't have a proper timer on my microwave - it's a dial one from the dinosaur era that no lightning strike has been able to wipe out - they tend to only strike the things you want to keep and can't replace!
I stick it in to melt the butter, take out and mix in the flour til the paste is a good consistency, add a little milk and mix in (if too much milk is added early on it will turn lumpy quickly), continue adding milk as mixture gets more and more runny, stirring smooth each time.
Once all milk is in stick it in the microwave and heat - take out and stir periodically. Take care as it tends to thicken all of a sudden just as it does on the stove. It tends to thicken around the outsides so stopping more frequently at that stage works best and whisking - though it doesn't need that many stops before it's done at that stage.
I like a little pepper, salt and nutmeg in ours - sometimes cooked onion. And cheese if it's a cheesy sauce of course.

I do cheats white sauce in the microwave. 200ml of milk in the microwave - heat till hot. Meantime mix a couple of spoons of corn flour with a little bit of cold milk and make a fairly runny paste. Mix the 2 together and then microwave on medium in 30s bursts until it's boiled and thickened up. Just watch it cos it boils over easy.
