When I’m in the mood, I really do like to cook and experiment with things. For the last year, that’s been centred around Steaks and such (being a #meatatarian and all). Today I decided to try something different, a cheese sauce.
This recipe was quite simple really.
- 1 tablespoon (14g) butter
- 1 tablespoon (8g) all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup milk any percentage
- 3/4 cup (3oz) shredded Cheddar cheese
- Pinch of cayenne to taste
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a small pot, over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk in flour and cook, whisking continuously, until flour is lightly golden, about 1 minute.
- Slowly pour in milk, whisking out any lumps as they form. Continue to whisk the mixture until it is thick and bubbly, 3 to 4 minutes.
- Remove from heat, stir in the cheese a handful at a time until all the cheese has been used and sauce is smooth and creamy. Add cayenne, salt, and pepper to taste.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
The only thing I changed was using 35% cream instead of milk. So definitely creamier and of course, you can add in any flavourings you like to suit your desires. For now, this stayed pretty much as is. Future versions will be a bit fun to play with :)
