I thought this was a good cheese sauce for vegs. I use about 5 slices of American Cheese. I had to guess how much cheese because the recipe does not say how much to use.

A simple and delicious sauce for broccolli or cauliflower, etc. I was a generous with the cheese (1/2 cup grated old cheddar). For a bit more tangy-ness, try adding 1 tablespoon of french mustard (or mustard powder).

This is going to be a thick sauce, before adding the cheese this is rue, which is a base for gravy, or to thicken soup. I saw many say it was gritty, if you used cheddar cheese it might be the cause. I have had the same issue with my homemade mac n cheese if i use cheddar. Try using a softer cheese such as Colby, colby jack, cheddar jack might be ok too, since it's not just cheddar cheese. Hope my suggestion helps a little. I was just thinking softer cheeses melt easier so maybe it wouldn't get gritty.
