Velveeta Cheese Sauce in the Microwave

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by BecR2400

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).

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!

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!
