Brie and Bacon Bechamel Sauce

 

 

As with all bechamel sauces, we start with a blob of butter gently melting in the pan

We mix and make it look goooey

Then, in comes the cream. (I use whipping cream)

And to make it a little lighter …. some milk…. If you really want to pretend to be really good, use skimmed milk

Then it’s mixing time

And just when you thought you were done with adding things… you have to add some sliced up brie

And it’s mixing time again till the whole thickens to your taste

You can pour the sauce directly on some pasta or on some lightly grilled chicken breasts or whatever you like.

I chose to serve it in a clay pot and to keep it warm I had one of those old fashioned plate warmers under it…. a candle!
