Mmm…cheese! It is one of my favorite things. Seriously, I have to watch how much of it I eat. I could live off of it! And there is nothing like a homemade cheese sauce. Perfect for pasta or a baked potato, this is the kind of recipe you should always have on hand.
1. Create a roux by warming the two tablespoons of butter in a large skillet and adding the flour. Whisk well until all of the flour is incorporated. If you like your sauce on the thicker side, use 2 tablespoons of flour.
2. Slowly add in the milk. Once the flour, butter and milk have combined, add the shredded cheese.
3. At this point, the sauce should be fairly thick. If you wish for it to be thicker, bring the cheese sauce to a slight boil and then remove it from the heat. If you want to thin it out a bit, add more milk. But do it sloooowly.
Now it is ready to enjoy! I used this sauce in a lovely baked mac n’ cheese with broccoli pesto. Yum!
