  1. In a sauce pot on medium heat, melt the butter.
  2. While the butter is melting, in a small dish combine the flour with the spices and seasonings.
  3. Once the butter is melted, heat still on medium, add the flour mixture while whisking quickly for about 1 – 2 minutes.
  4. Pour the milk into the pot and turn the heat up to high to bring to a boil.
  5. Quickly whisk while it’s coming to a boil. The sauce will thicken up fast.
  6. Once the sauce thickens up add the cheese to the pot and turn the heat down to LOW.
  7. Use the whisk to combine the cheese sauce and turn off the heat.
  8. Serve over steamed broccoli or use in cooking as desired.
