My dad came up with this in his bachelor days using a basic white sauce recipe. I love it because it is so easy,quick, and pantry friendly. To make more simply use 2 cans and 2 tbsp of cornstarch.

I used mild, shredded cheddar, and thought it was fabulous, a bigger cheese punch than Velveeta. I was short on lemon juice, but you can tell, biting into a forkful, how much the other half of the lemon juice will be next time. Great idea! Tell your dad I sent it to one of my boys.. :)
