Oven Baked Roux

If you're like me you simply lack the patience to make a good roux. While I could buy some, it is so easy to make in the oven that I prefer to make up a large batch and freeze some for later.

Easy Oven Baked Roux

  • Equal parts Oil - coconut, canola, vegetable, sunflower, etc (a lighter oil)
  • Flour
Cooking Directions
  1. For this batch we used 6 cups of each.
  2. It doesn't get much simpler, basically you whisk together really well in a heavy oven proof pot- some people swear by cast iron but we used the Emeril set I won in a recipe contest for Kyra.
  3. Bake in a 400 degree oven, whisking every 15 minutes until it is that nice caramel-ly color that makes a great roux.
Simple, I know, and while it takes longer than stove top you avoid the constant stirring and it comes out perfect every time.
