Recipe Ingredients for Mornay Sauce

2 1/2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
2 ounces grated cheese, such as Gruyere

Recipe Directions for Mornay Sauce

  1. In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until the roux is pale yellow and frothy, about 1 minute. Do not allow the roux to brown. Slowly whisk in the milk and continue to whisk until the sauce thickens and comes to a boil, about 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to a simmer and season with the salt, pepper and nutmeg. Allow to simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. This is now called a bechamel sauce, and may be used as is to top any number of dishes.

  2. Stir in the cheese and whisk until melted. If the sauce seems to thick, thin with a little milk.
