This is really your basic cheese sauce, but you must use top quality ingredients. Use butter, and a good quality cheddar cheese. I liked using Kraft’s Cracker Barrel cheese; my preference is also the sharp.
Armstrong’s Cheese Sauce
Armstrong's Cheese Sauce
This sauce is great on almost all kinds of vegtables!
- 2 tablespoon Butter
- 2 tablespoon Flour
- 1 1/4 cup Milk (I like to use a mixture of half and half and milk), heated
- 1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until the paste cooks and bubbles a bit, but do not let it brown, if it browns start over again. This will take a couple of minutes. Add the hot milk, stir continually, and the sauce will begin to thicken. Bring to a small boil and cheese, and salt to taste. Add a dash of Cayenne and paprika.Print Recipe
