Very Easy Cheese Sauce


1 pint (600 ml) of milk
40 g of plain flour
40 g of butter
55 g of grated cheese (Gruyère, Cheddar, whatever you fancy)
30 g of finely grated Parmesan cheese
pinch of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon Grainy Mustard


Melt the butter over a gentle heat in a medium sized saucepan.

Sieve the flour into the pan and mix together to form a smooth paste.
Cook for 1 or 2 minutes.

Very slowly, add the milk, a little at a time, whilst continuously whisking or stirring with a wooden spoon.

Continue to stir or whisk and cook over a medium - high heat until the sauce starts to thicken and then reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. Do not allow the sauce to boil.

Add the cheese and stir until it melts.

Add the cayenne pepper and then season with salt and freshly milled black pepper, cook gently for a few more minutes.

Stir well and then serve.
