German Bechamel Potatoes

bechamel potatoes

German Bechamel potatoes are actually a mix of the German and French cuisine. Bechamel is also known as “white sauce”, and is made from butter and flour and milk. It is one of the mother sauces of the French cuisine but we like it a lot in Germany. This sauce is the base for many other dishes and can be changed to

  • Mornay sauce (with cheese)
  • Nantua sauce (crayfish, butter and cream)
  • Crème sauce (heavy cream)
  • Mustard sauce (prepared mustard seed)
  • Soubise sauce (finely diced onions that have been sweated in butter)
  • Cheddar cheese sauce (Cheddar cheese, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce)

This dish tastes the best with potatoes. Happy Cooking!
