- Melt the butter in the saucepan over medium high heat.
- Saute the onion in the butter until the onion is clear.
- Remove from heat, and add the flour, milk and salt.
- Return to the heat, and cook until the mixture thickens, stirring constantly.
- Add cheese and stir until melted.
- Add the vegetable pieces and simmer approximately 30 minutes.
