How to Make Brunch Essentials: Turkey & Bacon Sammie's
- Chef’s Note: A Béchamel sauce is very simple to make… it’s basically flour, butter, milk, and a few spices. If you want instructions on a basic Béchamel sauce check out my recipe post on Mother Sauces:

- Chef’s Tip: WE DON'T WANT A BLAND SAUCE!.
A Béchamel can be anything you want it to be… It’s a blank canvas ready to be seasoned. I like to give my Béchamel a bit of a kick with some white pepper, a pinch of salt, and a bit of cayenne. But the overall flavor is up to you. Have fun with it.
Just remember that this sauce is carrying a lot of the load for this recipe, so make it tasty.
