  • 50 grams (1/2 cup) sharp cheddar cheese
  • 50 grams (1/2 cup) low moisture mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 2/3 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • spices of choice: paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, mustard powder, fenugreek, etc, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of each.


  1. In a saucepan on medium high heat, combine 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of flour and mix them until combined. Cook the mixture for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Next slowly add the milk, a little bit at a time. Add a little bit of milk, mix, then add some more, mix, and so on and so forth until you have added all the milk. If there are any clumps, no worries, you can strain the sauce.
  3.  Next, once all the milk has been added to the pan, add all the cheese and let it fully melt in there, while constantly mixing the sauce.
  4.  Add all the spices of your choice, 1/2 teaspoon at a time and let the sauce boil for 1-2 minutes. If you find the sauce too thick, feel free to add more milk and if you find it too loose, cook it down some more. You can store this in the fridge and reheat it when it is time to serve!

I speak 5 languages, but my favorite way to communicate is through the universal language of food. I translate food to be more approachable and accessible for the everyday cook. I didn't grow up with a lot, so I’ve always loved thrifting and finding a good sale. That also shapes my approach to cooking: I try to make most of my recipes as affordable as possible, and that is what my SCRAPS newsletter is about. Every two weeks I will send an exclusive recipe to your inbox. Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website.
