How to Make Cheddar Cheese Sauce for Veggies
I love an easy recipe. There’s a couple of recipes that I have for sauces and seasonings that I forget about most of the time but I am always so happy to have them in my back pocket when I need them.
This recipe for cheese sauce is something that is crazy easy. Six simple ingredients come together to make a sauce that tastes great on almost any vegetable!
Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a small heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat. The heavy bottom will keep the sauce from getting scorched.
Once melted, temporarily remove the saucepan from heat and add 3 tablespoons of flour as well as salt and pepper. Whisk to combine.
Return to heat and slowly whisk in the milk until well blended. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and smooth.
Whisk in shredded cheese until it is all mixed in and there aren’t any lumps.
Remove from heat and serve immediately. Enjoy!
