    I was going to make my regular cheese sauce, but decided to look here and see if there was anything different I could try. Lo and behold, Kittencal's name popped up and I looked no further. This sauce is so creamy and delicious! I would put less nutmeg in it next time, but that is only a personal preference. Thanks so much!

    Mine turned out great. I had never heard of egg yolks in a cheese sauce before. It makes it very creamy and decadent. I added a little sugar to offset the aged cheddar taste in mine.

    This sauce is easy and Good! I made it for scalloped potatoes and will definitely make it again. I did not have half and half so I just used milk, of course it was still great.

    I just used milk instead of half and half. It worked perfectly.

    Oh Kittencal, thank you for sharing yet another wonderful recipe! I made this for our cajun mac and it was the bomb. This recipe is fairly easy and my husband requested that it be put in our "keeper" file.
