Recipe: Cheese Sauce

To give a distinctive flavor to white Sauce, cheese is often added to it. A Sauce flavored in this way lends itself nicely to the garnishing of croquettes or soufflés, and it will be found quite tasty if it is served over some vegetables, such as steamed cauliflower, mashed potatoes, or rice served as a vegetable. Such Sauce may also be served over toast to make an attractive luncheon dish.

(Sufficient to Serve Six)

  •  2 c. milk
  •  4 Tb. flour
  •  4 Tb. butter
  •  1/2 tsp. salt
  •  1/4 tsp. paprika
  •  1/2 c. grated cheese

Make a white Sauce of the milk, flour, butter, salt, and paprika, and to it add the grated cheese. If desired, a dash of catsup or chili Sauce may be added for flavoring.
