Easy Cheese Sauce

Cheese sauce: a tasty addition to all sorts of freshly steamed veggies. Cauliflower, broccoli, even green beans love to flounce in its goodness. There are a ton of cheese sauces out there, and many are very similar. Substitutions can be made on the fly: Swiss to cheddar or pepper jack, sherry or to beer.

Here is a recipe for a pretty darn good cheese sauce. which we have made ourselves:
