I tagged I'mPat's Creamy Tuna Stuffed Spuds (Potatoes) and there was no recipe there for this very tasty, easy to make, sauce so here it is. You could mix it up with the cheese. I used 1/2 Swiss cheese and 1/2 Parmesan cheese. You can use this on noodles, potatoes or rice.

  1. Fry bacon.
  2. Remove bacon from pan; add butter.

  6. Cook until thickened.
  7. Add cheese. crumble up bacon and add here.
