    We really enjoyed how this made the Velveeta much more creamy. However, we found the addition of the sugar didn't compliment the caulflower and would leave it out the next time.

    5 Star Rating! Used regular whole milk instead of half and half and it still turned out just as wonderful! Also omitted the sugar. My kids are standing over the stove eating it with chips now while waiting for the rest of the family to get home. Will serve over broccoli tonight! Thanks So Much!

    Fantastic cheese sauce. I used skim milk, and 2% Velveeta, omitted the sugar and added a dash of red pepper. Only made 1/2 recipe, came out perfect, not too thick, not too thin. I added steamed broccoli and topped Texas sized spuds with it for our meat free dinner last week for Lent.

    Yum! Sooo good!! I used 2 % milk because that is all I had and it was still thick and creamy. I didn't want to take the chance that it would be sweet, so I omitted the sugar. Thanks for posting!!

    Great recipe! I used skim milk instead of cream and it still came out wonderfully. I love the flavour for veggies, but found it a little bland on pasta. I think if I make it for macaroni again I will add a little dijon mustard or powdered mustard just to give it a little more flavour. Thanks for sharing!
