Recipe: Basic Cheese Sauce

Super easy and basic cheese sauce that produces a really delicious and non-Velveeta semi-liquid for all your cheese sauce purposes. Good for casseroles, vegetables, mac and cheese, and even my preferred usage: nachos!

Ingredients
  1. 65g butter
  2. 75g flour
  3. 250g cheese, grated or chopped finely (I used cheddar)
  4. 400ml milk
  5. salt, pepper, paprika, turmeric, other spices
Instructions
  1. Melt the butter completely in a saucepan over low heat.
  2. Make a roux by adding flour and stirring contentiously until completely combined and forming a paste.
  3. Add about half the milk in slowly, making sure to stir continuously to keep the sauce smooth.
  4. Add in the cheese, spices, and the rest of the milk slowly.
  5. When the cheese is completely melted you can adjust the flour or milk in order to adjust consistency.
  6. Pour over things while warm.
Notes
  1. I feel like if you add a touch of butter or oil at the end it may stay liquid longer but I didn't and simply re-heated for 3-4 minutes to pour it again.
