A great basic recipe! I don't usually use heavy cream, so I make the roux first with flour, butter and use milk or half and half. I also add a few garlic cloves and have been known to add some steamed broccoli and roasted red peppers. For those of you who said the texture is not smooth, you need to make sure you buy a block of cheese and grate it yourself or buy it in the cheese department of the grocery not in the Kraft plastic container or any similar, they usually add some kind of anti-caking powder which renders the cheese useless if you want it to melt. Also, if you add it a bit at a time and stir, you will see better results regarding the cheese melting.
