Number of Servings: 8


    3 tbsp Margarine
    3 tbsp Flour
    1 1/2 cup Milk
    1 1/2 cup Shredded Cheese
    Desired seasoning.


* Nutrition information is calculated using 1% milk and Full fat Old Chedder cheese. For a healthy option, consider using skim milk and/or light cheese instead.

* This sauce is also excellent for a Mac n Cheese or casserole in substitution for other prepackaged/canned sauces on the market!

* I have used this for home made chilly and cheese fries, a topping for lightly browned chicken, and even replaced some of the liquid in Potato Scallop with this sauce to make a Broccoli and Cheese potato scallop! It's very universal.


In a pot on medium heat, melt 3 tbsp margarine. Add 3 tbsp flour and whisk until no lumps remain.

Add 1 1/2 cups of milk and stir. Raise heat to Medium-High whisking frequently as to not scorch the milk. Mixture will gradually thicken. When desired thickness has been reached, add 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese. Smoked or sharp cheeses work best. Remove from heat and season (Salt, Pepper, Paprika, White pepper, etc.).

Serving Size: Makes approx 2 cups, serving size 1/4 cup.
