White: Bechamel

posted by SueA 01-04-101 8:31 AM

Bechamel (Basically just white sauce)
3 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
Dash of ground nutmeg, if desired

Melt the butter in pan over low heat, stir in the flour with a whisk until smooth. Add the milk gradually, stirring constantly; cook until sauce is thick. Stir in salt, pepper and nutmeg (if using it). If not using right away press a piece of wax paper or Saran wrap to its surface to prevent it from skinning over. (You can add Parmesan to this)
