Cheesy Sauce for Veggies, Meat, Potatoes or Pasta

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

I love this on broccoli, corn, baked potatoes, even some meat or pasta. I like to use white pepper. I don't like the look of the black pepper in the sauce, but it's up to you. If you don't like the sharp cheddar, you could also use a couple slices of American cheese.

This sauce was very tasty over steamed broccoli! It must be magical because my girls ate the broccoli without complaints! Thanks for posting!
