How do I make cheese sauce?

I need a simple cheese sauce to make for my toddler to turn leftover noodles into Mac and cheese. How do I do this? I'm clueless Lol.

Re: How do I make cheese sauce?

Melt a couple tablespoons of butter
Add in a tbsp flour
whisk the heck out of it and really incorporate it in for a minute or two
Add a cup of warmed milk a third of a cup at a time
Add shredded cheese until melted

Let me know if you need more info

Also it helps if you let the sauce thicken when you put the milk in little by little! It will thicken nicely into a roux.

I do 2 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp flour, and 1 cup of milk.

It's really yummy! Thankfully DH likes it much better than the box stuff.

You can do in the microwave too- melt butter add flour and whisk. Add a splash of milk whisk then add the rest and stir. Stir after 2 min, 3 min, 4 min, 5 min add cheese and cook 1 more minute. My girl has also always liked just sprinkled cheese over leftover pasta with black beans thrown in if you want to try the easy route.

She loves this or the black beans and cheese with rice. She sometimes has it with diced avocado or red pepper as well.
