3.  Using a saucepan, add butter and minced garlic. Cook until tender. Add bread crumbs and mix. Cook for about a minute.

4.  Pour in the milk and stir continuously until the sauce starts to thicken. Season with salt. Cook until it becomes thick, stirring constantly to prevent it from burning. Remove from heat and set aside.
