A lot of people say they have trouble getting a beschamel, but with this method, I’ve never had a problem.
1 cube butter
1 T. flour
1 c. milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Cheese (optional) – Parmesan, Monterey jack, mozzarella, or anything the melts well
Melt the butter slowly in a saucepan. Add the flour and whisk until smooth and incorporated. Cook the sauce on low heat for a few minutes, always whisking.
Add the milk and continue stirring until it begins to thicken. Season with salt and pepper. Voila! Done!
