3- Cheese sauce for veggies recipe

Monday, February 23, 2009

I found this recipe on Web MD. I am rather picky when it comes to my veggies and this gives a cheese recipe that you can drizzle over your veggies that might be good. I haven't tried it yet and hate to post something I haven't tried, but..... I am gonna do it anyway.

3-Cheese Sauce

Drizzle this creamy sauce over steamed veggies for a tasty change of pace.


2 tablespoons of flour

1 1/4 cups of low-fat milk or fat-free half-and-half

2 ounces of part-skim Jarlsberg (or reduced-fat Swiss) cheese, grated

2 1/2 ounces of reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, grated

2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon of pepper


1. In a small saucepan, blend flour with 2 tablespoons of the milk or half-and-half to form a smooth paste. Using a wire whisk, slowly blend in remaining milk until smooth. Simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
2. Reduce heat and add cheeses, garlic powder, and pepper. Stir until well blended and cheese has melted.
3. Remove from heat and use as desired.
