For the sauce:

Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. When butter is melted, quickly whisk in the flour to form a smooth roux. Don’t let it get brown.

 

Once the roux is smooth and bubbly, slowly pour in the cold milk while whisking to make a smooth sauce. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens.

 

Stir in the lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, paprika and pepper.

 

Bring sauce just back to a low boil and turn off heat.

 

Pour the sauce evenly over the Swiss cheese layer. Spread the sauce around to the edges of the dishes.

    New to keto, but 16g of carbs in a meal seems high when I’m shooting to stay under 25g for the day. With Panko and regular flour?!? What exactly makes this low carb (question not criticism)?

      Hi Mark, thanks for your question. I don’t have it listed as keto as this may be to high for keto guidelines. It does work for those following moderate or liberal low carb diets according to the info found at this link –
