Easy Cheese Sauce {12 Uses}

easy cheese sauce (1)

My children would live on nachos and cheese IF Momma let them. I forbid them eating nacho cheese sauce from the can everyday. I MIGHT consider them eating my homemade cheese sauce once a week on healthy foods like potatoes, vegetables or meats and occasionally nachos. I know exactly what it’s made of and I know who’s making it ;)

I’ve disovered some really great freezer entrees using this easy cheese sauce. With all these great uses throughout the week, you might consider doubling the recipe below.
