My special awesome cheese sauce

This is my TM conversion of my macaroni cheese sauce I have been making for over 30 years
It is very popular on the TM forum - you can check the rave reviews here

Grate 180g tasty cheese on speed 8 for 5 seconds


45 g flour
50 g butter
1 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp salt
pinch cayenne

and 500 g milk

Cook 7 mins 90 deg speed 4. If you are making macaroni cheese you cook a pot of small pasta while this is happening 

When it's cooked it looks like this 

And after you mix the pasta and sauce together it looks like this. 

Fun fact about mac and cheese - even the Sims can make it - this is apparently a very common recipe for Sims who have not developed their cooking skills! (or so I am told)

  1. Dear Lord! The look on that boys face in the picture. Either a fake smile or else a look of dread that he has to consume that food.

    1. You are not a kind person. And it's still his favourite comfort food

  2. I'm still cooking this after all these years. A great recipe.
