Recipe Ingredients for Bechamel sauce

4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over medium-low heat until melted. Add the flour and stir until smooth. Over medium heat, cook until the mixture turns a light, golden sandy color, about 6 to 7 minutes.
