Cheesy Sauce

I'll tell ya, ball season at our house means quick dinners. Usually that makes kids happy because it seems like the quick dinners are their favorites. I miss the good ole fashioned long prep dinners but with only minutes of cook time in the evening, we have to settle for quick nutrition. 

They love a simple stuffed potato...probably because it is covered with cheesy sauce. The recipe I use is from my friend Molly's cookbook. You could put cheesy sauce on anything and make it tasty. I like this sauce because it is subtle and not processed. No Velveeta in my house. We have our limits.

Cheesy Sauce

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk 
1 tsp. sea salt
1 1/2  cups grated cheddar (we use raw grass fed)
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
pepper to taste

Melt butter in pan. Mix in flour and cook for a minute, stirring constantly. Stir in milk and cook until thickened, stirring. Add rest of the ingredients and stir until cheese is melted. Serve warm.

Hmmm, I've never made cheesy sauce. I'll have to jot that recipe down. I need to make better dinners. While on my diet, I try to stay out of the kitchen as much as possible. I'm afraid the family is paying the price. :)

Can I ask where you get your raw cheese. I have only found some at Trader Joe's and I don't know if it's grass fed. I have no clue where to find some. Thanks.

I get mine at Trader Joes and I am pretty sure it is grass fed as well. There is Grass fed at Walmart but it is not raw. I rotate sometimes.

Thanks! I'll check Wal-Mart out. I learn so much from your blog. Thank you!
