READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by davinandkennard

I needed to make Mac and Cheese for a lot of people and chose to adapt a recipe I found here to make the sauce. I got rave reviews!!! The sauce freezes like a champ and can be used over cauliflower, broccoli, or to make scalloped potatoes. It could also be a form of Welsh Rarebit or thinned to be an excellent cheddar soup. Please remember this make enough sauce for many dishes. Preparation and cooking times listed are approximate
