Cheddar Cheese Sauce

Submitted by: ZYUNAFUL


Use on sandwiches or increase amounts for mac and cheese. Use on sandwiches or increase amounts for mac and cheese.
Number of Servings: 8


    1 cup 1% low-fat milk, divided
    4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1.5 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1/3 cup packed)
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Remove from heat, then stir in the cheese to ensure that the sauce doesn't curdle. The flour helps stabilize the dairy mixture, but if it's boiled after the cheese is added, the sauce will separate or curdle.


1. Combine 1/4 cup milk and flour in a saucepan; stir with a whisk. Stir in remaining 3/4 cup milk and salt; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low; simmer 2 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in cheese and pepper, stirring until cheese melts.
