Cheese sauce, when made properly, is a good addition to pasta and vegetables; you can even use it to make various meat dishes. Some people do use processed cheese slices to make cheese sauce, but block cheese is another option. Cheddar cheese makes a rich, creamy sauce that is mild in flavor. It takes no time at all to make, and once you know how to make it, you can use it in a wide range of recipes.
Melt 1 tbsp. of butter in a sauce pan on medium heat.
Take 2 tbsp. of plain white flour and add it to the butter. Whisk the flour and butter until the consistency is smooth and thick.
Pour 1 cup of cold milk into the pan with the flour and butter. Whisk the mixture until all the milk is mixed in. The mixture should be thick, smooth and creamy.
Turn the stove down to low heat.
Add the cheese to the mixture bit by bit to melt into the sauce. Continue to add the cheese until melted, stirring the sauce as you go. The sauce should be a smooth, thick consistency when ready.
