A basic& easy cheese sauce that I sometimes use over cooked cauliflower or broccoli.
Make and share this Basic Cheese Sauce recipe from Food.com.
- 1⁄4 cup butter

- 1⁄8 teaspoon dry mustard
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup old cheddar cheese, grated (I usually use medium)
- Melt butter in saucepan, add flour and seasonings and stir until blended.
- Gradually add milk and cook stirring constantly until thickened.
- Stir in cheese and heat until cheese melts and sauce is smooth.
Great recipe..served it over salmon loaf family loved it...#hinttotomdouglas you cooked it too long cheese breaks down fast
This is my go to recipe for cheese sauce and thought it was past time to review it. I made it yesterday to go over gluten free pasta. The flour was a gluten free blend. I like to use a combination of cheeses and typically stay with a cheddar and mozzarella blend. This is excellent with pasta or over veggies.
Great sauce. I used it for a casserole, so had to add more milk to make it a little thinner. :) Otherwise, thanks. Since going gluten-free, I miss my Mac & Cheese terribly. ;) Also added garlic powder, which gave it some extra ooooomph!
