Well, the cheese sauce I made was delicious. My family just loved it. Although, next time I'll put my dang glasses on. I mixed up the cheeses. My sauce was heavy on the swiss and light with the cheddar. I can't wait to try it the right way. I served it with breaded, boneless chicken thighs, cauliflower, and a green salad. Yummy.

Thanks for the great recipe! Simple & easy to make with great flavor. I used the sauce in my tuna casserole & it was perfect. This will be used again :)
