Velveeta Cheese Sauce in the Microwave

Total Time
Prep 2 mins

I just love this simple velvety smooth cheese sauce--it's so easy, cheesy and good! Yummy drizzled over cooked broccoli or cauliflower, or just about anything. Enjoy! Note: Measurements are approximate, use more or less to taste. As the cheese sauce cools, it will thicken; gently reheat to serve (you can whisk in a small amount of milk or water, if needed).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Microwave the cheese and milk (plus the dry mustard, Tabasco or onion powder, if using) in a microwave safe dish on high.
  2. Stir well at 30 second intervals, until cheese is melted and mixture is smooth and creamy (about 2 to 3 minutes total--you may need to add more milk, as desired).
  3. Serve hot over cooked cauliflower or broccoli (or your favorite vegetable). Enjoy!

Thanks for the recipe. It was just the one I was looking for. We enjoyed it fifty years ago and will have it again tonight. Great sauce!

I made this on 5/03/08 to top off some chili dogs.I know it's for veggies,but I decided to think outside the box.And this makes a great chili dog sauce.Since I didn't need the full amount,only half was made.I did add about 1/4 teaspoon mustard powder and about 1/8 teaspoon of onion powder. With the amounts of seasonings I listed it made the perfect cheese sauce.This will be made again.Thanks for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)"

I love!!! this sauce; it really stays with the cauliflower, due to its thickness. So easy to make, too. THX, Becky! It's a definite keeper.
