Recipe's preparation

  1. Place butter in mixing bowl and melt 3min/100degrees/speed 1.

  2. Add flour and cook 3min/100degrees/speed 1.

  3. Add milk, salt and black pepper and cook 12 min/90 degrees/speed4.

  4. add cheese and stir through 20sec/speed 3.


use any grated cheese you like. I use a mix of cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan that i have grated in my Thermomix. See the introduction to your basics section of your Basic Cookbook for instructions on how to grate cheese.

This recipe was inspired by a combination of the Bechamel Sauce recipes in the basic cookbook and the Everyday Cookbook. I've adjusted the amounts slightly to make a thick sauce.

Thermomix Model

  • Appliance TM 5 image
    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Cheesy Bechamel Sauce Double Batch

    Great big batch white sauce. I added cooking time as comments suggested it may be a little thin. It cooled really thick and needed a good spread, but it was so yummy in lasagne!!!

    In the middle of moving and couldn’t find my Everyday Cookbook so I made this version instead. Thanks for the great recipe.

    Tasted okay but definately was not thick by the end of cooking - way too runny for my liking. Perhaps let it cool before using?
