Cheese / Bechemel Sauce

If you are like me then you love cheese, any cheese, weather its a strong blue or mild cheddar, well, ok , not the mild cheddar, but you know what I mean, good tasting cheese with depth to its flavor,

Well how about a cheesy / bechemel, white sauce that you can use as a dip, or its especially good for making Lasagne or with pasta or even one of my favorites just in a cup and swig it like its a cup of soup…… nearly forgot, Cauliflower Cheese

I found this little gem as part of a recipe from Genaro Contaldo, and its perfect, I havnt tweeked it in any way which is rare for me.



  • 60g Cheddar
  • 60Parmesan
  • 1 ltr milk
  • 100g Butter
  • 80g Flour
  • 1/4 Fresh Nutmeg
  • Salt and Black Pepper



  • Melt butter in a pan and add Flour and stir and cook for 2 -3 minutes
  • when paste has formed without any lumps add the Milk, Salt, Pepper and Nutmeg and stir with a whisk for 2 minutes.
  • Add the cheeses and continue to stir it for 10-12 minutes over a medium heat

    Bechamel is a magic sauce! It’s so lovely as is, with cheese, or with just about anything else thrown in! Great photo.
