Here is my quick and easy microwave cheese sauce recipe

I love cheese sauce… So it goes without saying that my favourite dish is Mac & Cheese!  Ever since I was little I just loved it!  My mum would even make me my own cheese sauce lasange when I was little (hate mince!) So it was one of the dishes I missed when I left home.  Anytime I attempt to make it, It always end up lumpy and I have to get the hand blender out to save the day.  Ofcourse the one thing you try to achieve when cooking for a family is quick meals and to use the least amount of dishes!

I then remembered that the one time I had managed to make it, was back at University when one of the girls in my dorm had a microwave recipe.  It was fail safe and tasted much better than the blended attempts I had been making.  So I set about working this out, so I could add this classic back on the menu in our house.

So I’m happy to say I’ve come up with a microwave cheese sauce recipe that is just as quick as heating up a jar of sauce and obviously tastes far better!  But most importantly, it’s a one container recipe!
