    Melting 1 tablespoon of butter or light butter in a skillet over low to medium heat.
    When melted, add the flour and stir.
  3. Have the milk handy while you're cooking the flour. After about a minute, start gradually adding the milk.
    Stir quickly to mix with causing clumps.
    As the milk is incorporated, raise the heat slightly and continue to add milk.
    The sauce will thicken. When the milk is add turn the heat to Low and stir in the grated cheese, 1 cup at a time.
