1 1/2 cups
shredded Cheddar cheese
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Simple yet perfect cheese sauce! Tip to avoid 'gritty' sauce: You have to go old school and shred cheese from a block. Packaged shredded cheese is coated with flour to prevent shreds from sticking together, and this will make the sauce slightly gritty.
I used to make it this exact way all the time. Tonight I tried it a little bit different so it wouldn't be as THICK. I used 2 teaspoons of corn starch then mixed it as usual. Then after putting the milk in I mixed 1 tablespoon of flour with milk (a roux). It came out creamy and smooth. I even used 3 slices of cheap american cheese and it was still delicious. Oh and salt in pepper of coarse.
outstanding. I doubled it, followed it exact. poured it over penne with some chicken pieces and broccoli. AWESOME Sauce...almost alfredo like, but better...added some garlic as well for a bit of flavor. will use this all the time now
Very easy and quick to make and even though I'm one of the lucky moms who's kids WILL eat their broccoli without a cheese sauce, I tend to not like it too much, so it helps me! LOL I made this once with old cheddar and it was MUCH better than with medium, so if you're going to make it stick to old or extra old cheddar. Thanks for this recipe! I'm sure I'll use it often :)
I used the recipe to make a Cheddar Potato Bake. I tripled the recipe, boiled 5 lbs potato cut into bite size pieces until almost done. Drained the potato and stirred in enough cheese sauce and some left over bacon crumbled then poured into a buttered 9x13 pan. Baked for about 30 minutes, sprinkled some bread crumbs over top return to oven till browned.
Delicious, very easy to make!
Perfect! and delicious. Just what I was looking for to pour over broccoli for something different. I used a mix of Gouda and American (because that's what I had) and I'm sure you can use just about any cheese you like. Thanks webbsk for sharing.
Perfect! I used 2% Velveeta, instead of cheddar b/c I have better luck w/ it melting. I will be using this recipe again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
