Your basic cheese sauce is cheap, easy and quick to make. It can be as thick or as thin as you like, and because you choose the cheese the sky is basically the limit. Hello blue cheese sauce with bacon.

Just four ingredients: Milk, flour, butter and cheese.
The first step is to make a roux, a basic and important cooking technique, that's a simple paste of flour and butter (or any fat you like).

Slowly adding flour to melted to butter to make a roux.
"The purpose of the fat is to coat the flour particles, to keep them from clumping together so they swell independently as the liquid is gradually added," according to the Exploratorium's Science of Cooking blog. "When a sauce begins to thicken, the starches within each flour particle take up liquid... When the starch granules initially swell by absorbing liquid, you've basically made a thickened paste. Once they've been exposed to liquid and dampened, starch granules are primed to swell more as additional liquid is added."
