Broccoli and Creamy Cheddar Cheese Sauce

Broccoli and Cheese SauceI love cheese sauce on vegetables.  My mother made cheese sauce to serve on brussels sprouts, broccoli, or cauliflower.  It’s such an elegant way to enjoy steamed vegetables, especially for a holiday dinner.  Sprinkle a little paprika on top and call it a party.  Serve it on its own as a warm dip.

Kerrygold’s new Skellig sweet cheddar cheese has plenty of flavor to put the pizzazz into this sauce.  The creaminess of this cheese is special…and it melts very quickly.  No salt or butter needed on steamed veggies when cheese sauce is involved.  And the few extra calories are totally worth it.

Skellig Sweet Cheddar Cheese Sauce for Vegetables

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons Kerrygold butter

2 tablespoons quick-mixing all purpose flour

1 cup milk or half-and-half

1 cup grated Kerrygold Skellig cheddar cheese

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

sprinkle of paprika

Directions:

Melt the butter in a saucepan and whisk in the flour.  Slowly pour in the milk and continue whisking until the sauce becomes smooth and begins to thicken.  Sprinkle in the grated cheese,  stirring while it melts. Add the dijon mustard and  fresh ground pepper, stirring until evenly incorporated into the sauce.  Remove from the heat and serve over steamed vegetables such as broccoli, brussels sprouts or cauliflower. Sprinkle paprika on top.

  1. Skellig and Kerrygold overall is amazing. I was fortunate enough to taste Skellig last summer before it hit many of the stores here in SoCal. SO delicious. I’m going to try this for one of my game nights 🙂
