Recipe Time!

Best Blue Cheese Sauce

2 T butter
2 T flour
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
3/4 wedge blue cheese, chopped into blocks (I used Fairview Blue Rock)
salt and black pepper to season

Melt the butter completely, mix in all of the flour with a whisk until there are no lumps, and a smooth paste is formed. Pour in the milk/cream combo, stirring slowly. It will start to thicken, continue to stir so it does not burn. Continue until you reach the consistency and thickness of your choice. Add the cheese and stir it in.
Once the cheese is melted and mixed in, transfer to a bowl/serving jug, or else it will burn.

You can substitute the blue cheese for any other to make a cheesy sauce to your liking. Or omit it completely for a lovely bechamel sauce.

I made this tonight to go into a chicken and mushroom pie. It was delicious!
