White Sauce aka Bechamel Sauce


“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is a standard white sauce for use in other recipes.  You can double it and add whatever cheeses you like for a basic mac and cheese recipe.  Add salt and pepper or other ingredients as desired or as your recipe calls for.

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt your butter.  Then add flour and stir until the butter and flour are well combined.  Slowly add 1 cup of milk, stirring constantly as it thickens.  Add cheese and macaroni to make easy mac and cheese.

  1. I have been making this gravy for years but we call it Milk Gravy. Who knew I was making something as fancy as Bechamel lol. Also, instead of butter I use pan drippings from whatever meat I cooked or bacon grease works too. I never thought of using butter…I’ll have to try that.
