  • If you want cheesy white sauce, add 1/2 cup shredded cheese (you can add as much cheese as you like to make it as cheesy as you wish).

    This is the traditional medium white sauce recipe I learned in cooking class 50 years ago. I add significantly more shredded cheese, greek seasoning, and a good quality mustard to bring out the cheddar flavor.

    How, pray tell, does one cup of milk produce TWO cups of sauce??? Very misleading.

    I add 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract to make a cream sauce for bread pudding.

    Fair warning- if you serve this to your family you can just forget trying to get them to ever again eat boxed mac&cheese!
