This recipe is typically used with Greek Pastitsia. 

A more traditional method 

Place the milk in the TM bowl & heat to scald the milk 5 mins/90C/speed 1. Set aside & keep hot.

Place the butter in the TM bowl 1 min/90C/speed 2.

Cook the butter in the TM bowl at 7 mins/ 90C/ speed 4/MC off, and slowly pour the flour through the MC hole to make a roux. Once the roux is smooth, slowly add the hot milk.

Finally, through the MC hole, add the grated cheese, nutmeg, pepper and egg yolks in that order. The sauce should be smooth & glossy, and cook 3 mins/37C/ speed 1.

    This is the best béchamel sauce recipe yet all the ones you chuck in a blitz taste floury. I had nearly given up

    Great recipe, thanks. I like my bechamel quite thick (so that it sits on top of pastitsio) so I'll cook for a little longer next time.

    I can't wait to give the traditional method a try as I often find the Thermomix white sauce and gravy recipes a bit floury. Thanks for posting the recipe as I was looking for an alternative method.
