How to Make Cheese Sauce Recipe

  1. Melt the butter: Heat the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until completely melted.
  2. Add the flour: Gradually sprinkle the flour into the melted butter, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Continue cooking the mixture of flour and butter over medium heat until it becomes golden and develops a pleasant aroma.
  3. Pour in the milk: Slowly pour the milk into the saucepan with the butter and flour mixture, whisking constantly. Continue cooking the mixture over medium heat until it thickens. This will take approximately 5-7 minutes.
  4. Add the cheese: Once the sauce has thickened, add the shredded cheese. Stir the sauce until the cheese is completely melted, and the sauce becomes smooth and creamy.
  5. Season with mustard, salt, and pepper: Season the sauce with mustard, salt, and pepper to taste. Stir to evenly distribute the seasonings.
  6. Ready to serve: Your cheese sauce is ready! Use it as a sauce for pasta, pizza, baked dishes, or as a dip for vegetables.
