To make the thick white sauce, cook the butter and flour in a saucepan over medium heat until the flour has thickened. Slowly add in the milk, stirring constantly until you get a thick pudding consistency.
Make sure to stir constantly to prevent any lumps. Immediately remove the sauce from the heat once done.
