How to Make Béchamel Sauce
While its French name may sound intimidating, learning how to make a béchamel sauce is easier than you might think. Known
as one of the "mother" sauces in classic French cuisine, Béchamel is versatile: It's used in dishes such as lasagna, macaroni
and cheese, and moussaka, and it can also serve as the base for soufflés, soups, and savory pie fillings. What's more, add
a little Swiss cheese, and voilà—you've got Mornay Sauce. We call for white pepper so it isn't visible in the sauce. If it's
unavailable, you can omit it.
