Bacon Mornay Sauce

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Dienia B.

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.

Great sauce!!! I decided to use cheddar for the cheese and made this a bacon penne and cheese lunch. I made 1/2 of the sauce but still used the full amount of bacon and I did at least double the amount of cheese in order to get enough flavor from it. It didn't say what or when to use the bacon so I just added it right before serving so the bacon still had some crunch. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
