½ cup of chicken or vegetable stock

3 tablespoons of soft butter
3 tablespoons of flour
1½ cups of milk
1 cup of grated Cheddar cheese (or other tasty cheese)

2. Melt the butter in a small/medium saucepan over medium heat then turn heat to medium/low and stir in the flour.

3. Stir and cook for just a few moments then remove from the heat and continue to stir while adding the milk – adding it little by little and stirring briskly to avoid lumps until all the milk is combined.
