Beautiful Bechamel Sauce

Hello food.....

Maybe beautiful is an odd word to describe this..... it is what it is... there's not much more to say. Very useful for various dishes, but not exciting in itself at all. :)

What do I need?

  • 40g Butter
  • 20g Plain Flour
  • 400ml Milk
  • 1/2tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • Sprig of Thyme
  • Salt and White Pepper
What do I do?

  1. Place the butter in a small saucepan and melt slowly, careful to not burn. 
  2. Add the flour and stir in.
  3. Meanwhile, in a separate pan place the milke, nutmeg, bay leaf and thyme - bring to the boil slowly.
  4. Strain the milk into the butter and flour mix and whisk to ensure you have no lumps. 
  5. Season to taste.
  6. Use where you need it.
