  1. Fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium high heat for 10 minutes, or to desired crispiness. Drain excess fat, crumble bacon and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter or margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, stirring constantly, to form a roux.
  3. Slowly add the milk, stirring often to avoid lumps. Then stir in the salt and pepper to taste, mustard powder and the cheese.
  4. Let simmer for 1 minute, allowing cheese to melt some, remove from heat, add the bacon and stir well.

Having very little experience with this sort of sauce, I was a little nervous. It turned out wonderful. I also only used 2 cups milk, and real bacon. First I cooked the bacon, then cooked some onions in the bacon grease... After that I followed the recipes pretty much as is except less milk, and at the end added the bacon and onions back in. We put this sauce, chicken, and asparagus in a crepe and it was AWESOME. My 8 years old loved it!!

As this recipe stands it's a 3 but I made some changes which turned it into something my family want again. I used only 2 cups of milk as I'd read reviews about it being runny. I used real bacon and added in some chives, some leftover chicken and some mushrooms. I filled crepes with the result and it made a good dinner. Thanks for the starting point.

Really versatile, and so delicious! I always use extra-sharp Cheddar and real bacon for maximum flavor. I have this on a baked potato. Love it! Thanks, Michelle!
