Susie Q’s Simple Cheese Sauce

This sauce is so simple to make and can turn a good meal into an extraordinary one with just a few simple ingredients. You can put this on almost anything from meat, veggies, and pasta for a creative dish. Once you see how easy this is you won’t want to go back to store-bought cheese sauce!

This is one of those recipes that I just have in head and I don’t normally measure so I tried my best to estimate the amounts. I’ll really try to remember and measure the next time I make it so I can adjust the recipe accordingly.

Susie Q’s Simple Cheese Sauce


  • 3-4 T. Butter
  • 3-4 T. flour
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 c. cheese (I have used shredded, sliced, and anything I had on hand to make it before… but we prefer to use a sharp cheddar whenever possible)
  • seasonings to taste, if desired (salt and pepper, garlic salt, cayenne, etc.)


Melt the butter on medium-high in a medium-sized saucepan.

Stir in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring to keep from burning/over-browning.

Whisk in the milk and cook for 1-2 minutes, until slightly thickened.

Add the cheese and stir until melted.

Cook for another 1-2 minutes and season to taste.

Enjoy over your favorite dish!
