Bacon Cheese Dip/Sauce

Ingredients:

2 cups whole milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups cheddar cheese, grated (I got a nice seaside English cheddar)
2 Tablespoons hot sauce (or more if you like it a bit spicier like me)
salt and pepper to taste

Bacon Cheese Dip-4

Directions:

Heat the milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Don’t let scald, but heat until top starts to form a foam.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Gradually add flour stirring until a paste (roux) forms. It should be similar to wet sand.

Slowly whisk warm milk into the roux in a steady stream. Continue cooking over medium heat, whisking while the mixture thickens. Add the cheese and bacon bits, whisking together until cheese is melted. Add the hot sauce and salt and pepper to taste.

Use as a dip for chips or a sauce for baked potatoes, steamed vegetables, or whatever else you want to pour it over!
