Béchamel Sauce
Béchamel Sauce, also known as white sauce, is a basic sauce which is used as the base for other sauces, such as mornay sauce and cheese sauce. The basic sauce is made by stirring milk gradually into a flour-butter roux. The thickness of the final sauce depends on the proportion of milk and roux.

The sauce is named for Louis XIV's steward, Louis de Béchamel, who is sometimes attributed with having invented it. FREE Recipes
