Bechamel (White Sauce)

Bechamel (White Sauce) created by Outta Here

This easy-to-make sauce is delicious over chicken, pasta, steamed veggies, and more! While the recipe calls for 2 cups of milk, you may need to add 1 Tbs. - 1/4 cup more to thin, depending on your heat and other variables. Remember, sauces thicken as they cool, but they still take quite a while to thicken (up to 15 minutes, depending on your heat).

directions

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in the flour, stirring constantly, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Gradually add in the milk, stirring constantly, until thoroughly incorporated into butter mixture.
  • Add salt, pepper, oregano, and minced garlic (I like using my garlic press for this). Stir frequently until thickened. See note for tip on thinning.

    Excellent white sauce. The oregano and garlic really are a nice addition. I used this on a grilled chicken breast marinated in your recipe #492760. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
