DIRECTIONS

  • In a small saucepan, heat the milk until steaming, but don't let it boil or form a skin.
  • While the milk heats, melt the butter in a heavy 2-quart saucepan on low heat.
  • Add the flour and whisk to form a smooth roux.
  • Continue to cook and whisk for 3 to 4 minutes to thoroughly cook the flour.
  • Increase heat to medium, and whisk the hot milk into the roux in a thin, steady stream.
  • Continue to cook until the sauce is smooth and thickened slightly.
  • Don't stop whisking, since white sauces can burn in an instant.
  • Lower the heat, add the cheesed, mustard, and sherry, and whisk until the cheeses melt.
  • Using a double boiler or a heat diffuser, gently cook on very low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Enjoy!
