    3KillerBs's Note:

    I'm a bit timid about making a roux and my waistline doesn't really need the extra butter so this simple cheese sauce suits me perfectly. Try it for yourself. Note: The quality of a cheese sauce is all about the cheese. If your cheddar is sharp enough mustard and Worcestershire are unnecessary. If not, then maybe a pinch of the one and a dash of the other would be a good idea.

      The recipe was good. I think it could have used some salt, or maybe garlic salt instead of powder. I was expecting more of a cheesy flavor, so I may use the whole 8oz. of sharp cheddar next time. But I also used 1% milk to be healthier, so maybe that altered something. Other than those adjustments, the texture was good and there were no lumps like the recipe claimed. There are a ton of calories and fat, but thankfully we just used it to drizzle on the veggies, and are freezing the rest for later use. Thanks.

      This was a good, solid recipe. I used to serve over potato stuffed pasta shells and roasted brussel sprouts. I used 8 oz. of cheddar cheese and I used salt instead of garlic powder. I found that the longer I had the sauce on the stove, on low heat, the thicker the sauce became.

      Delicious! Super easy, too! I added some garlic clove and salt and pepper. Also, i used a four cheese italiano mix instead of chedder to reduce the fat. It was scrumptious! I was worried that the cheese would clump up like previous experiances, but it worked like a charm!
