Cheese Sauce

Published Friday, 04 September, 2009 by Mark Penver

proper cheese sauce for any dish



  • 2 heaped table spoons of plain flour
  • 1 tea spoon of butter (even the i can't believe it's not butter works for this!)
  • 300ml MILK!
  • CRAP loads of grated cheeeese
  • (optional) english mustard


warm a small pan to melt some butter in there, once melted add the flour to create a paste type mixture. once warm remove from heat and add the milk and whisk it in with a spoon or a whisk.

if not all of the paste saturates in the milk then reapply to heat and stir till it does (if still no luck then add more milk!

keep stiring till a thick white sauce is made and remove from heat.

now add the grated cheese, the reason no measurement is given is because it depends on what you want, personally i like it cheesy so i use a good half a block of cheese on this godlike sauce.

now for added kick a small dollop of mustard is added and stired in.

now this sauce is what youget in lasagne and things like that. I like to use it for leek and ham wraps and for lime rice and ham wraps as the textures work reaaaally well and i've had no complaints from friends so far ;)
