Cheese Sauce


1 cup hot milk
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

Scald the milk, about three minutes in the microwave. Make sure it doesn't boil over. Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Add the flour to the butter and stir until completely mixed. Stir the hot milk gradually into the butter-flour mixture until thoroughly mixed. Stir in the grated cheddar cheese until completely mixed. Return bowl to microwave and cook on high, stopping to stir every 30 seconds, until the sauce reaches the desired consistency.
