    Very tasty and easy. When making the sauce, I used 3/4 C of milk and 1/4 C of heavy cream just to give it a bit more thickness. A touch of salt and Sharp Cheddar (instead of Mild Cheddar) will make a big difference as it may be a bit bland.

    I'm assuming the 180 oven temp is in Celsius...? So, 350 Fahrenheit...?

    Wonderful recipe, modified the breading to suit taste, but made the sauce (the obvious star of the recipe) almost exactly as written (I added a little more cheese because I had a VERY mild one, but it wouldn't be necessary with a sharp cheese). My very picky family loved it!! will definitely make again!

    I was looking for a cheese sauce with out Velveeta, a person in my house is not fond of it. As I was making the cheese recipe I added 8 tablespoons of butter in stead of teaspoons. So I thought well, just add 4 table spoons of flour (I used rice flour because we can not have gluten) I ended up adding almost 5 table spoons to make it thinker. then I added 2 cups of milk to see what would happen, I ended up needing about 2 and a half. and then with the cheese I added a cup and a half. Along with pepper, salt, and garlic. Wow what a wonderful tasting cheese sauce. From there I thought well I have enough to have cheese sauce for our veggies tonight and for a broccoli/cauliflower soup. So i separated what I needed for tonight and added about 2-3 cups of chicken stock I happened to be bowling, broccoli and cauliflower. Boy that is the best soup I have ever had. thanks for posting this wonderful cheese sauce!
