–  1/4 cup butter

– 1/4 cup flour

– 2 cups milk

– 2 cups grated cheese

– a few shakes of Worcestershire sauce



  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter
  • Once the butter is melted and bubbling whisk in the flour.  Continue whisking to cook the flour until the mixture becomes smooth, silky and thick in texture.
  • Slowly add the milk and continue to wisk.
  • Once the milk is lightly bubbling, add the cheese and continue to whisk.
