"This is a quick and delicious version of an American classic made with sharp Cheddar. Add diced ham or tomatoes, or top with more cheese and broil for a crispy Cheddar crust."

this was very delicious, added a but more milk. I packed the cheese down when I was grating, so it came out more cheesier, also I would advise to wisk every 1 minute when in the micro, this makes it less lumpy.

Really yummy exept I omitted the butter and used 3/4 T of flour instead of 3 T and I added 2 slices of american cheese. I also wisked it on top of the stove instead of microwaving. It took about 15 minutes. It was smooth and creamy.

This is a staple in our home. Creamy sauce and easy to make! I add a little bit of onion and chopped ham.. I go lighter on the flour and use SHARP cheddar for best flavor (IMHO). Cooking time was about half in my microwave so be sure to watch it and BE SURE TO WHISK IT EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, per the directions, or you will get lumpy goo. Good quick meal.
