Add the onion, bay leaves and peppercorns. Bring to a boil, watching closely, then immediately remove from heat and allow the milk to steep for about 30 minutes. Strain and compost solids. Melt the butter in a heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add the flour, whisking so it doesn’t burn. Stir with a wooden spoon to cook the flour for 2-3 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and add the milk, bit by bit, starting with small drops and whisking with a balloon whisk to keep it smooth. Once you have stirred in all of the milk, return to heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens (this happens fairly quickly). Reduce heat, simmer for 3 minutes and stir in liquid smoke if using (recommended!) Season with salt and pepper. bechamellasagnarecipeSauce SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Rebecca Wellman Having lived on the West Coast all her life, Rebecca made the move from Vancouver to Vancouver Island in 2004 to pursue her love of fine food and expressive portraiture.
