Recipe by half_a_penny
After looking for a cheese sauce and coming up short, I created this fantastic recipe that the whole family LOVED! You can use any kind of cheese you like, but I prefer an old/sharp cheddar. The cayenne pepper only adds flavour, not heat, so if you want it hot you'll have to increase it.
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons garlic butter
- 2 tablespoons light cream cheese
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon dried cayenne pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon juice
- salt and pepper
