  • Cheddar Cheese, Milk, Butter
  • Cooking Directions

    Heat the milk in a large saucepan in medium high heat.

    Meanwhile, melt the butter in another saucepan and stir in the flour to make a roux.

    Add the warm milk, whisking constantly, and continue cooking until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.

    Add the cheese, whisking constantly to combine.

    Season with the cayenne and salt and pepper to taste.

    Strain through a sieve to remove any lumps before serving.

    Makes 3 cups.
