Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth, then continue to cook and stir until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Gradually stir in the milk so that no lumps form and then simmer until thick, stirring the whole time. Remove from the heat.
  2. Stir together the baking soda and canned tomatoes; stir into the sauce. Whisk together the mustard and eggs; stir into the tomato sauce. Set the saucepan over a pot of barely simmering water (like a double boiler). Stir in the cheese and season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until cheese has melted.

I am so sorry, but this recipe didn't even deserve one star, but it's making me use at least one. I have never written a poor review before and I'm not really sure what to say. First off, I made it EXACTLY as written; no adjustments. It not only lacks flavor, but when the cheese melted, the entire thing seperated and looks just terrible. Don't even get me started on what my house smells like right now! All in all, this recipe is in need of an overhaul. I'm so sorry...
