This cheese sauce is so luscious it literally could go on anything.
I was given a bunch of greens (swiss chard, kale) and I was looking to jazz them up a little.
My go-to sautéed greens usually involves bacon fat, onion, garlic, the greens.
This time I sautéed my greens as usual and just added in some cheese sauce. I can’t tell you how delicious it was. It was like spinach madeline but with swiss chard.
Here’s how I make the sauce.
Start by making a roux. Melt a few tablespoons of butter and whisk in some flour. Whisk for a few minutes.
Add half and half and milk and whisk until smooth and sauce starts to thicken.
Add 2 oz. velveeta and whisk until melted.
Oh la la. Now is when I add some seasoning. Salt, garlic powder, and onion powder to be exact.
Lastly, whisk in 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese until smooth.
Give it a taste. You’ll want to dip a chunk of crusty bread in it.
Or you can add it to vegetables. Here is swiss chard and kale. Spinach would also be fabulous, broccoli too!
