Directions

Melt 4 tbsp butter in skillet over medium-high heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly for 3 to 5 minutes to make a blond roux, the color of sandpaper. Add the onions and cook for 2 minutes. Add the milk, oyster liquor, salt, cayenne, and black pepper and bring to a gentle boil. Stir constantly for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the mixture thickens slightly. Add the parsley, green onions, garlic, and oysters.

When melted remove from heat and serve immediately.
