Mac N’ Cheese Sauce

Makes approximately 2 servings


  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1 cup milk (any kind)
  • Nutmeg, to taste
  • Cheese- any kind, to taste (I choose to use about a cup of cheddar)


  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Once melted, add the flour to create a roux and let cook until the mixture begins to turn golden.
  2. Once golden, add the cup of milk and whisk together until there are no clumps of roux left. Add nutmeg, if desire, and allow the milk to heat until lightly boiling.
  3. Add in the desired amount of cheese and mix until incorporated. The sauce should be thick, but note that it will thicken as it cools down or extra cheese is added

To serve, simply mix with your pasta of choice and enjoy! If you would like to make a vegan version, simply use a plant-based milk of your choice (I like almond milk for this recipe) and a vegan cheese substitute.
