Pot of Gold
A simple cheese sauce that is great as a dip
for bread chunks, tortilla chips or raw vegetable pieces.
Adds a great taste to baked potatoes or nachos.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Slowly stir in
flour and salt. Cook over medium heat, constantly stirring, until
smooth and bubbling. Remove pan from stove and while mixture is
still hot, slowly stir milk into the flour mixture. You must continue
to mix quickly so that the milk is not cooked by the hot mixture.
When all the milk is added, return the pan to the stove and bring
to a boil -- stirring constantly. Let mixture boil for one minute,
again stirring constantly. Stir in cheese until is is all melted.
This makes a little over 1 cup of cheese sauce.
