      This simple sauce makes the right amount for two people to serve over chicken, eggs, fish, pasta, or veggies.
      Basic Bechamel Sauce
      2 tbs unsalted butter
      2 bsp all-purpose flour
      1 cup hot milk (zap in Microwave on high for 1 minute)
      1/4 tsp dried mustard
      Salt and ground white pepper to taste
      Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Whisk in flour and cook for 4 – 5 minutes, whisking frequently.
      Whisk in hot milk and increase heat to medium-high. Continue stirring almost constantly until sauce thickens and begins to bubble.
      Remove from heat and season with mustard, salt, and pepper. (Note: White pepper is used because it’s milder than black pepper and can’t be seen in the sauce. Black pepper is perfectly acceptable.)

      I don’t know your mom’s recipe, but using this recipe and 1-3 different kinds of shredded cheese will yield a most fabulous, creamy mac and cheese dinner or side.
      Personally, I prefer to use a Mexican blend, mozzarella, and parmesan to make my mac and cheese the most fabulous comfort foodgiggle smiley
      Let us know how it works out!
