I've never had the best luck using vegetable oil for this, as it seems to me as though unless it's super fresh the taste goes off. Nothing nastier than rancid veggie oil. However, rather than butter what I've found does work well is butter-flavored shortening. Of course bacon, burger or sausage grease is still the best!, but shortening is a good fall-back. Probably want more salt, and pepper than listed, and I've had good luck adding either a bit of garlic, sugar and sage (sausage hint) or cayenne pepper, as well. Normally I'll also be browning some finely diced onion with the flour.
