  • Summary

    You can use whatever cheese you like in this sauce. I normally use cheddar, but will use Swiss cheese if I want a milder flavour. Treat the amounts of cheese for the sauce as a suggestion. Use more or less cheese depending on the end use of your sauce, and how cheesy you like it. I typically just throw in handfuls of cheese until it tastes right.

    Ingredients

    • 60g butter
    • 50g (1/3 cup) plain flour
    • 500mls (2 cups) milk
    • 125g cheddar cheese, grated
    • 3 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    • Pinch of nutmeg
    • Salt & pepper
