Bechamel Sauce

Posted by Unknown Saturday, March 21, 2009
5 tbsp butter
1/4 cup flour
4 cups whole milk
1-2 tsp salt
pinch or two of nutmeg
pinch essence
couple cracks of pepper

Melt butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Stir often for 6-8 minutes until you have a light golden color.

Increase heat to medium high and slowly whisk in milk until thickening into a roux. Bring to a light simmer and then reduce heat to medium low letting simmer 15-20 minutes until it leaves a smooth feeling on your tongue when tasting. Season and you are done.
