White Sauce/bechamel (#10)

Category: Sauces

 Ingredients List

  • 3 tb Butter
  • 3 tb Flour
  • 2 c Milk
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • x Freshly ground black pepper


1. In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter* over low heat, until foamy. With
a wooden spoon, stir in the flour until a thick paste forms. This is called
a "roux."

2. Whisk in the milk until smooth. Stirring occasionally, cook 10 to 12
minutes, until simmering, thick, and smooth. Simmer 2 minutes to "cook
out" the flour taste.

3. Season with the salt and freshly ground black pepper.

TIP: * If you brown the butter slightly after it has melted (don't burn
it!), it will add a nutty flavor to the sauce.
