How to prepare the real Italian recipe of “Bechamel or Besciamella”
The Bechamel sauce is a base sauce of the traditional Italian cuisine, which is used as a starting base for more elaborate dishes such as Lasagne or Cannelloni. You can make it at home quickly and easily or you can buy it already made. We prefer to make it at home, nice and fresh. Super easy. Yummy!
Ingredients for the Bechamel
- 50 grams of Butter
- 50 grams of Flour
- Half liter of Milk
- Salt, Pepper and Nutmeg as preferred
1. Melt the butter in a pan, add the flour and cook on low heat for 3 minutes.
2. In the meanwhile bring the milk to a boil with salt, pepper and nutmeg, stir in the butter and flour and simmer for five minutes.
THE SECRET: the bechamel is ready when you insert the spoon into the sauce, you take it out and see that the sauce stays firmly attached to the spoon.
