Best Cheese Sauce Ever

Every Groo girl should know how to make this family favorite! It is great on a variety of veggies, meat, and – of course – macaroni.

¼ C butter
¼ C flour
~2 C milk
~2 C grated cheddar cheese
salt to taste
pepper to taste

Place softened butter in a wide pot or saucier over low heat. As butter begins to melt, sprinkle in the flour, a little at a time. Using a whisk to blend will give you best results.

When all of the flour is incorporated into the butter, you have a roux. Turn the heat up to medium. Add the milk, about ¼ cup at a time, stirring slowly but continuously. Add the cheese and continue to stir until it is all melted and blended in.

Add salt & pepper to taste.

Serve over hot buttered pasta.

Yields: 6-8 servings

Time to make: 15 – 20 min

Notes: For creamy, delicious Baked Macaroni & Cheese: Cook 12 oz large elbow noodles to just shy of al dente, mix in one batch of Cheese Sauce, pour all that into a casserole dish & sprinkle grated cheese on top. Cover with foil and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

  1. Regular pepper is fine, but I like to use white pepper (which avoids little back spots all over the sauce). Just start with less of it than you think you will need, as it is ground very fine and the flavor is strong.
