Description

A basic cheese sauce recipe. Perfect for making mac and cheese!

From Erica Kastner of Buttered Side Up.

Ingredients

  • 5 Tablespoons Butter
  • 5 Tablespoons Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Unrefined Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 2 cups Whole Milk
  • 6 ounces, weight Freshly Shredded Cheese (I Like To Use 2/3 Soft Cheese Like Colby And 1/3 Sharp Cheddar)
  • 1 pinch Nutmeg

Preparation

In a medium sauce pan set over medium-low heat, melt butter. Add flour, salt, and pepper and whisk to combine. Cook, whisking often, until mixture is bubbly and smooth, about 3 minutes. Do not brown the roux.

Add 1/3 of the milk and whisk vigorously until completely smooth. Gradually add the rest of the milk, whisking until smooth. Bring to a boil. Boil and stir 1 minutes. Remove from heat.

Gradually add the cheese, whisking until melted and smooth. Stir in the nutmeg if desired. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
