Nif's Simple Cheddar Cheese Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Nif_H

It's nice to have an easy recipe for cheese sauce on hand. You can drizzle this over broccoli, cauliflower or pretty much any other favourite veggie. It is also nice tossed with pasta but you may need to increase the amount of sauce. Enjoy!

What a great simple and easy cheese sauce! It was a snap to make and tastes decadently cheesy. :) I used a red Irish cheddar and used the sauce to make mac and cheese. Very tasty!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Nif!
