White Cheddar Cheese Sauce

This cheese sauce is smooth and creamy with the sharpness of extra old cheddar. It is the ultimate topping for steamed broccoli, cauliflower or asparagus. I also really love it poured on a baked potato or used in homemade mac and cheese.

I made this recipe to go alongside some Stuffed Peppers and it was the perfect sauce poured on them.

Making cheese sauce is very easy as it is a béchamel (white sauce) with cheddar cheese stirred in and melted into the sauce. Béchamel sauce is a base sauce and used as a start or foundation to the cheese sauce.
