Beshamel Sauce for Chicken Negressco

bech.jpgThis is the first of two parts of Chicken Negressco from Salma Keir from Caring For Eleanor.

4 tablespoons butter or olive oil
2 oz flour
2¼ cups milk
1 egg

– In a sauce pan, heat oil.
– Add flour and whisk vigorously to lightly brown the flour.
– Add salt as you whisk.
– Add milk a little at a time whisking to avoid lumps.
– Remove from heat when thickens.
– Add raw egg and whisk into mixture.

Now it is ready to be added to whatever dish you want to add it to.
This sauce is a white sauce to use with pastas and making Croque Monsieur, ham and cheese with sauce on top.
