Light Cheese Sauce

This cheese sauce, which can make almost anything taste better, is made with a combination of low-fat milk and flour to keep it light.

Serves 20

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 10 min.

Ingredients

  • 5 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups nonfat milk, divided
  • 2/3 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • Cayenne pepper, to taste (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Whisk flour with 1/4 cup milk in a small bowl until smooth. Heat the remaining milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until steaming. Add the flour mixture and cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce bubbles and thickens, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in Cheddar, dry mustard, paprika, cayenne (if using) and salt.
