Home-made Cheddar Cheese Sauce

Home-made Cheddar Cheese Sauce


This home-made Cheddar cheese sauce is a delicious sauce if you do not feel like buying ready made sauces in the supermarket. This delicious home-made Cheddar cheese sauce comes a long way with me. I used to make this sauce with macaroni noodles and transformed it into a kiddies macaroni cheese meal when I had to make kiddies meals for the guests. But recently we became addicted to chicken schnitzel with home-made Cheddar cheese sauce. Tonight we will try it with our home-made beef hamburger and chippies. The little bit of mustard in this home-made cheese sauce gives it some extra flavour, something I will always remember from our late lecturer chef Steve Davison(British) from my chef school days at Warwick Chef School.
