White or cheese sauce hack for lazy cooks

I want homemade cheese sauce.  I detest that salt ridden excuse in packets. 

But alas I am time poor on occasion.

Thus was conceived this hack to make it almost instantly. 

Start by boiling the jug.

Into a large measuring cup place:

3 tablespoons plain flour

3 tablespoons skim milk powder 

Gradually add 1 cup boiling water.

Add 1 tablespoon of butter. 


For cheese sauce add grated cheese.  I prefer to freeze bags of grated cheese as that’s even quicker. 

For ideal results microwave it for 2 minutes being careful not to boil it over.  Stir and use. For thicker sauce microwave an extra minute or two longer.

TIP: Add “bits” to individualise : eg tiny bit of mustard powder,  herbs,  splash of white wine prior to cooking. 

Tin of tomato and onion flavoured salmon and corn kernels then onto pasta. Nom nom.

You’re welcome.
