How To make a tasty Bechamel sauce (for croque Monsieur)

When making a croque monsieur it is vital to know:
1/ How to make Bechamel sauce
2 /How to flavour a Bechamel sauce

That will simply and effectively get the quality of your toasted sandwiches ( croque monsieur) a notch above the rest.


ingredients needed for the classic bechamel:

250 ml /1 cup of full cream milk (Whole milk)
20 grams / 1 tablespoon of butter
20 grams /3 tablespoon of flour
For the flavouring:
salt pepper
a pinch of grated nutmeg
a pinch of cayenne pepper
1 bay leave
30 grams of onion ( in one piece)

Ingredients needed for the bechamel I made in this video ( formula 2):

250 ml /1 cup of full cream milk (Whole milk)
20 grams / 1 tablespoon of butter
20 grams /3 tablespoon of flour
For the flavouring:
salt and pepper
a pinch of grated nutmeg
4 to 5 small dry morels mushrooms ( soak them in warm water first for 1 hour)
2 tablespoon of Morels liquor ( the water in which the morels soaked in)
1 bay leave
30 grams of onion ( in one piece)



****************************************************************

Most croque monsieur are made with a classic bechamel sauce that has hardly has any taste and this can be a show stopper for a lot of people that are not particularly fan of that sauce.

In this video we learn how to make a tasty version of the bechamel sauce that you will be able to flavoured with anything you like. I am demonstrating the process of making a mushroom (Morels) bechamel but you can use the same technique and come with your twists on that recipe.

Trust me once you tried it you will never go back to the standard bechamel sauce recipe.

As a bonus I am giving away my signature French toasted sandwich recipe that uses in my view one of the best bechamel or sauce for croque monsieur.
