3. To prepare creamy sauce, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan, stir in flour. Then gradually add milk (a small amount at a time), stirring carefully to prevent lumps. Then add sour cream and season the sauce with salt and pepper.

I tried this recipe and loved it! The sauce probably needs a little bit more flavor, but even my picky 3 year old kept telling how good it was!
