Don’t get me wrong. I literally LOVE broccoli and cauliflower (and I realize that by admitting that some of you may be questioning my taste in food). However, my husband, like a lot of people, doesn’t like broccoli or cauliflower either (and was also disappointed when I craved raw broccoli with our first baby instead of ice cream or cookies) and so every once in awhile I will make him that classic cheese sauce to put on his vegetables. I love it because it is SO easy to do with Magic Mix since since it’s basically a white sauce with cheese!
1 C. water
1/2 C. magic mix (this is less than you would use for a thick sauce, because I like mine thinner-if you like yours thicker than use the full 2/3 C. magic mix like it calls for in the original “Magic Mix White Sauce” recipe)
1/4 C. cheddar cheese, shredded
Combine water and magic mix in a pot over medium high heat. Stir constantly with whisk until it bubbles and thickens. (If you’re worried at this point that the sauce is too runny, don’t make a final judgement until the cheese is added as that will also thicken the sauce.) Stir in shredded cheese until melted in sauce. Serve warm over vegetables. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to a week. Perfect for kids or husbands!
