Equipment

  • Saucepan

Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ cup Milk
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tbsp Flour
  • 1 ¼ cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • ¼ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • tbsp White Pepper
  • ¼ tbsp Onion Powder

Instructions
 

  • Firstly, melt the butter in a saucepan and add the flour to it. Cook for about 2 minutes. The mix of flour and butter, called ‘roux’, is an essential part and needs to be whipped continuously to get rid of any starchy flavour before adding any ingredient.
  • Pour in milk slowly while stirring the mixture to avoid the formation of lumps.
  • You may now add the onion powder and white pepper to the mix. I also splash a tablespoon of garlic powder to add an extra edge to the sauce (completely optional).
  • Mix well until the mixture reaches a boil and thickens. Now, remove the pan from heat.
  • Add grated cheddar and parmesan cheese to the mixture and keep whisking for about 2 minutes until the cheese melts.
