Cheese Sauce

Ready to use with a creamy, silky smooth consistency that’s wrapped up in a distinctly tasty cheddar taste. It is a versatile long-life product, which is perfect for dishes such as nachos, chicken cannelloni and creamy pumpkin soup. It’s also great for baking breads, muffins and scones or simply heating and pouring over vegetables.


Serving suggestions:
  • Make an easy cheesy vegetable bake or au gratin.
  • Use in cheese muffins, scones or bread instead of grated cheese to add moistness and flavour.
  • Use instead of grated cheese in pies and other pastries.
  • Save time preparing Italian dishes like cannelloni and lasagne that require cheese sauce.
  • The classic delicious topping over broccoli and cauliflower.
  • Blend with tomato paste for a cheesy pizza base.
  • Add your favourite pickle or relish to create a delicious dip to serve with breads or crackers.
  • Use as a spread for paninis or sandwiches.
