Rich Cheese Sauce

This is a rich and tasty cheese sauce recipe, which you can use for macaroni/cauliflower cheese, lasagne, moussaka etc. Make the sauce thicker or thinner by varying the amount of flour and cheese you use.
  • 2 tbsp butter/marg
  • 2-3 tbsp plain flour
  • 550ml/1 pint hot milk
  • 1 egg yolk, optional
  • Pinch of grated nutmeg
  • 50-100g (2-4oz) grated 'tasty' cheese (strong cheddar, vegetarian Parmesan etc) 
Melt the butter in a pan, stir in the flour and mix well to form a paste.
Slowly stir in the hot milk, stirring or whisking all the time.
Bring to the boil and simmer until thick.
Add the grated cheese, stir well and then remove from the heat.
Finally stir in the egg yolk, if using. Pin It


  1. Simple, easy and yummy. (Reminds me of an ex-girlfriend of mine.)
