Feta/Dill White Sauce
I remember eating at a Greek restaurant once where I had rice as a side dish. It was covered with a delectable cheesy sauce. This was my first attempt to duplicate. I think it turned out well!
The basic recipe was found here, and it worked the very first time I tried it.
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 1/4 c. milk, heated
1/4 c.feta cheese
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 stem of fresh dill
Heat the milk in the microwave (I used a glass measuring cup) for 1.5 minutes. While that is happening, melt the butter on low. Add the flour, turn the heat to medium. and cook for about 2 minutes, until a nice paste is formed and very warm. Add the heated milk and stir, turning the heat closer to high. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbling. Turn off the heat and mix in the cheese and nutmeg, stirring until melted. Remove from heat, and add the dill -I used scissors to cut fresh dill over the pot. I used 2 or 3 turns of the pepper mill to add fresh pepper to the sauce. Stir, and enjoy.
