Quick and Easy Cheese Sauce
4 Tbsp butter (half a stick)
1/4 cup flour (I use whole wheat)
2 cup milk (use about half as much if you want it the consistency of condensed soup)
cubed or shredded cheese to taste (I usually use cheddar or colby)
In a small saucepan, melt butter. Turn off heat and stir in flour until smooth. Add milk and heat until thick; add cheese chunks and stir until melted.
If you don't want the cheese flavor, just leave out the cheese chunks - this is your basic white sauce (roux).
