Cheese Sauce

I used to love the nights when we had cauliflower and cheese sauce at dinner. It didn’t happen a lot but I gotta say cheese sauce makes the world a better place!!

It is easy and so tasty, plus it is good on every vegetable you can think of, including mashed potatoes!

What you need,

3 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1½ cups milk (I used 1%, but 2% or whole would just make it even better.)
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste

Start by melting the butter in a medium sized pot over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes until starting to turn golden brown.
Gradually whisk in the milk to combine. Continue to stir over medium heat until the sauce thickens up. Stir in the grated cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Pour liberally over the veggie of your choice, in this case cauliflower!

YUM! Cheese Sauce rocks!



  1. Mmmm, cheese sauce... I used to love those rare nights growing up when my Mom would make cheese sauce for cauliflower, too! For some reason, the result is that cheese sauce makes me feel loved! Gotta make this soon.

  2. Sometimes Dad and you would use cheese sauce over some sort of canned fish on toast didn't you? I would just have cheese sauce over toast, LOL!!! Pretty much if there is cheese in it, I EAT IT(or want to eat it).

  3. Ya, Dad used to make creamed salmon on toast. I loved it, a can of salmon in cheese sauce on toast, not fancy but tasty!
