Ingredients

1
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3
1 cup whole milk
4
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
5
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
6
Salt and black pepper to taste

Method

1
In a saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat.
2
Add the all-purpose flour to the melted butter and whisk continuously for about 1-2 minutes to create a roux (a thickening agent).
3
Gradually pour in the whole milk while whisking constantly to prevent lumps from forming.
4
Cook the mixture, stirring continuously, until it starts to thicken, about 3-5 minutes.
5
Reduce the heat to low and add the shredded cheese to the sauce, a little at a time, stirring until the cheese melts and the sauce becomes smooth and creamy.
6
If using, add the garlic powder for extra flavor. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
7
Once the cheese has melted completely and the sauce has reached your desired consistency, remove it from the heat.
