Great cheese sauce for cauliflower or a horseshoe (the Springfield, IL dish). The better the cheddar, the better the sauce.


  1. Melt butter in a sauce pan over medium heat.
  2. Whisk in flour and stir constantly for four minutes.
  3. Gradually whisk in half and half and keep stirring until it comes to a simmer.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in cheese until it is melted.
  5. Season with worcestershire, ground mustard seed, and cayenne.

Thank you SO much for this recipe! A Springfield, IL, native living out of state, I can't get a horseshoes without making my own. Flavor was perfect, but I thought it was a little too thick so I used another cup of half & half and increased the seasonings a touch. It was a HUGE hit with the family, so I am making my alteration notes and filing this recipe with the favorites. Horseshoe are going to be on the regular family rotation, now!
