Peter's Cheese Sauce

Recipe by CulinaryQueen
READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 3 Cups




  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium low heat. When melted, sprinkle the flour over. Whisk continuously for 2-3 minutes, making a roux the consistency of paste. If necessary, add a bit more flour to get the right texture.
  • Slowly add the milk to the roux, stirring constantly. Do not increase the heat at this point. Make sure the milk is thoroughly combined with the roux.
  • Once combined, raise the heat a bit and bring slowly to a boil. Let boil about 30 seconds, then remove the pan completely from the heat.
  • Add the 200 grams of grated cheese and stir until melted.
  • USES -- Pour over the dish you are making, such as cauliflower or pour into a serving bowl (as for dipping, etc.) Can also be used for potatoes au gratin.
  • If using on a veggie, sprinkle the optional 50 grams of cheese over the top and place under the grill/broiler for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Enjoy!
