Recipe: Bechamel Sauce (Classic White Sauce)

All you need:

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup whole milk
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste (white pepper preferred)

All you need to to:
Make a classic roux by melting the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Add the flour and stir with a cooking spoon over the heat for about 2 minutes… you want the flour to lose its floury taste.

Add the milk and whisk vigorously with a wire whisk until all the lumps are out of it and it thickens (about 4-5 minutes).

Salt and pepper to taste.
