Cheese sauce

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan.

  2. Stir in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes.

  3. Take the pan off the heat and gradually stir in the milk to get a smooth sauce. Return to the heat and, stirring all the time, bring to the boil.

  4. Simmer gently for 8-10 minutes and season with salt and white pepper.

  5. Stir in cheese and allow to melt. Don t re-boil the sauce or it will become stringy.
