Step 4: Rue!

In a large skillet, sauté the onion and garlic in the butter over medium heat until the mixture becomes fragrant and the onions turn translucent.  Add the flour and stir constantly.  The flour and oil should combine to form a thick paste.  Continue cooking until the rue has the color and consistency of peanut butter.
Made this for my department Christmas party last night and it was a big hit!!
<p>So glad to hear it! Thank you for sharing.</p>
OMG! I love The Union's Mac 'n Cheese, and I just made this. It tastes exactly the same. My family went crazy, especially since I've been trying to recreate this dish to no avail. It's amazing!
Thanks for the comment Marie! I still haven't had it, but it's great to get the feedback.
best recipe ever, especially when you add 6-7 pieces of well cooked crunchy bacon (chopped up)!
I'm glad you liked it, and agree that bacon would make it better!<br>
Oh yeah. So good. Dinner tonight
I saw this episode of D^3, and I think I'll try this next time. <br><br>That being said, I add Andouille sausage and Roma tomatoes (with a goodly amount of cayenne pepper) to my version...<br><br>So far I've gotten good reviews (folks asking for the recipe, which amounts to me saying &quot;Well... it's hard to explain...&quot;)<br>
You had me at CHEESE! I just can't say no to it!
