Cheap Cheese Sauce

I remember, and loved, my grandmother’s macaroni and cheese. She would use a package of longhorn cheese, some milk and some butter. She estimated the amounts. I changed her recipe to an 8 ounce package of shredded cheddar cheese. Then when I found myself unemployed and unable to work in 2008, I switched to an even cheaper sauce.

Cheap Cheese Sauce

4 T. butter

4 T. Flour

Dash of Salt and Pepper

2 C. Milk

6 ounces Shredded Cheddar cheese

Melt butter in pan over low heat. Blend in flour, salt, and pepper; and cook until bubbling.

Whisk in milk and cook over low heat…

…until thickened.

Add cheese…

Stir over low heat until blended.

You can also make this in the microwave. Melt butter, 30 seconds on high. Stir in flour and cook 30 seconds. Stir in milk and cook 1 minute. Stir and cook 1 minute at a time until thickened.  Stir in cheese and use whisk to blend together.
