Prepare the oven and preheat to 175 degrees C or 350 degrees F.
Apply cooking spray in a 9×13-inch baking dish.
Place a medium skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium.
Add olive oil and butter, then allow them to become hot.
Add the onions, salt, and pepper. Saute until translucent.
Add flour and whisk and cook for about 2 minutes or until it turns into a roux.
Add the milk gradually and whisk every addition until well blended.
Allow it to simmer for a few minutes until the texture becomes thick.
Remove the skillet from the heat.
