This is a very easy and really good white sauce recipe. My mum thought me how to make this béchamel sauce and I have never used any other recipe, let alone pre-cooked packs! Allez allez!
50 g unsalted butter
25 g plain flour
1 glass of cold milk (1/4 litre)
Salt & black pepper
Melt the butter in a sauce pan at low heat.
Add flour and whisk constantly until it becomes lightly golden (not brown!)
Little by little add cold milk whisking constantly in an 8 motion around the pan until it thickens.
Add salt and black pepper and if you want freshly grated nutmeg to add spice to the sauce. Et voilà!
You can use this sauce for infinite recipes: pasta, lasagne, cannelloni, stuffed vegetables, cauliflower cheese, meat… Virtually whatever you want. You can also add some cheese at the end and make it a cheesy sauce that will go great with any pasta or a potato gratin. Bon appétit!
