Smooth and Creamy Cheese Sauce, Millie's

Millie Johnson


Making your own cheese sauce from scratch is super easy and super yummy ! You can use different cheeses for different flavors to tweak it any way to suit your family's taste. This is my basic "go to" sauce for great mac n cheese, and also for pouring over steamed veggies. This is sure to be a family favorite !
* Spice it up with Cajun seasonings or a drained can of Rotel
