Tip:

– The white sauce can be tricky to cook. Especially, while you whisk the butter and flour.  Don’t panic -keep an eye on the pan and keep stirring at all times.  

-If you would like a lovely crispy golden brown topping. Turn the heat up a little for the last 5 minutes of cooking. Make sure you keep an eye on the oven at all time though.
