Bechamel Sauce (White Sauce)

My final recipe for second week under condiments is a basic sauce from french cuisine. Bechamel sauce is a basic sauce which also known as a white sauce. It is also used as a basic sauce for other sauces and many dishes. Not only as a basic sauce you can use this as a spread or as a dip. I enjoy this creamy sauce simply with garlic bread and some vegetable cubes...
