Accessories you need



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.

    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?
