Easy Peasy Cheese Sauce


To make this savory sauce you'll need...

  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of real salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons of flour I use self-rising
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 5 slices of deluxe cheese
  • salt to taste



  • In a small saucepan, over medium heat, melt your butter and pour in your milk. While the milk is still cold, whisk in the flour.
  • When the milk begins to warm, slowly add in your sliced cheese. (I tear the slices in half and add them one at a time. It could be overkill, but I can't stand the thoughts of stinky, scorched cheese.) DO NOT STOP STIRRING, it will scorch if you stop stirring!
  • Once all the slices are melted, then you can add 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar, again, do this slowly.


The sauce will thicken when it cools, but if it looks too thin you may add the other 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar. It just depends on how thick you like your cheese sauce. I add the salt last, and I add it to taste.
