  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup finely minced onion
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Healthy pinch rubbed sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 oz. crumbled bleu cheese
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped chives


1. Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add onions and cook for about 5 minutes over moderate heat until the onions are softened and translucent.

2. Add flour and cook over low heat for several more minutes, stirring frequently.

3. Add milk and whisking constantly, bring to a boil. The sauce should be very thick at this point.

4. Add chicken broth, sage, and black pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.

5. Reduce heat to a very low simmer and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently so that the sauce does not stick to the bottom of the pan and scorch.

6. Remove from heat and whisk in the bleu cheese until melted. Taste to see if salt is needed. Stir in chives and serve. If the sauce is too thick, add some hot milk or broth.
