  • 600ml of milk
  • 1tsp mustard paste
  • 175g grated cheddar cheese
  • 25g grated cheddar cheese

  2. to make the sauce melt the margarine or butter is a pan over a low heat. stir in the flour and cook and stir for 1 min.

  3. take your pan off the heat and add a little milk. Stir it really well. carry on stirring in the rest of the milk a little at a time.
