Traditional Cheese Sause

"Best cheese sauce I've ever had. I'm going to use this recipe from now on. It's so simple and took me less than 10 minutes to make and that includes getting the ingredients out of the cupboard and fridge too. I'm very impressed as I always thought my mums cheese sauce was the best but this makes it taste rubbish. I added chunks of ham and a little extra cheese and turned it in to a cheesy carbonara type pasta dish"

Super easy to execute....results were a wonderful non grainy sauce that will become my new go to recipe. I doubled the recipe and used equal parts cream and milk which made it extra velvety! Thanx so much for the post!

Well I use cheddar mainly but any meltable cheese is good jack cheese is amazing but hard to cheeses what every you fancy. Mozzarella doesn't work but I haven't tried it with a hard block :)
