We enjoyed this cheese sauce with Easy Loaded Baked Potatoes (4 Ways) (variation #2) It was delicious with the potatoes and broccoli :) I used 1/2 milk and 1/2 whipping cream to give the sauce a richer flavor also added crumbled up chicken bouillon cube in with the butter for another added richer flavor. I added alittle black pepper and used shredded cheddar cheese, this is what I had on hand. This is a keeper! Thanks for sharing the recipe :)
