      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).

      Its about time! My mum used to make this sauce when we were kids. My mum pass away about 5 years ago (along with alot of other recipes she used to make as well) and for the pass 2 years I have been trying to find someone that could tell me how to make it cos for the life of me, my brothers, and my dad we couldnt work it out. But we did have a slight idea. Apon reading this recipe I knew right then and there this was then one it all came back to me. Thankyou for submitting this I finally got what I wanted. Now if only someone could tell me how mum used to make lambs fry and bacon it would be a dream come true. I havent yet found any one including a few chef's that can make it the way mum used to. Tis a pity I didnt pay more attention to the way mum made alot of things b4 she pass away. then I would of know everything. Flattyre
