Cheese Sauce

Tasty cheese sauce that can be used over noodles, in a casserole or as a soup base.

CheeseSauce1

In a bowl, toss together the cheeses, cornstarch, mustard powder and paprika, until fully coated.

CheeseSauce2

In a saucepan, melt butter then stir in flour until smooth. Whisk together over medium heat for about 30 seconds to ‘cook’ the flour. This helps to remove its raw gritty flavor and texture.

CheeseSauce3

Slowly pour in the milk a bit at a time until its incorporated, then once the milk is warm, add in the cheese mixture, stirring until melted and thickened. If too thick, add a bit more milk. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    In this recipe the ingredients has listed cornstarch, but in the directions it uses flour. Flour is not listed. What type of flour would be best? Which is a better to use?
    I love all your tips. Thank you.

    Sorry! When we moved everything over to the new website some of the recipes didn’t get copied over correctly. I’ve updated the recipe and added some pictures. I used corn flour, but rice or sorghum would work just as well also. So glad to hear you’re enjoying our recipes and tips!
