Recipe by CookingMonster

Mom used this on cauliflower or broccoli. Can add cheese or dill to it to make a variation. Great on eggs, fish, veggies. I have also used this on carrots and peas. Yummy!

Yummy! Just like my mom used to make it!
I cooked the sauce in the microwave in a glass 2-cup measuring cup. Quick and easy, but watch out if you do it this way because mine boiled over - what a mess. Next time I'll use a larger measuring cup. I also added a few tablespoons of shredded orange cheddar and it was great!
