Tips on How to Make Cheese Sauce for Fries

  3. Remove the sauce from the stove and then add cheese and stir it in. cheese that is overheated can get clumped.
  4. When you are storing your sauce, store it in the refrigerator. You can reheat the sauce when you have to use it. You can use both stove or even the microwave to reheat your sauce. But it is suggested to make the fresh sauce for each use as reheated sauce won’t be that smooth and creamy.
  5. Taste the roux, as not enough cooking of the roux can make it taste floury. Cook your roux until it is golden in color and then taste it before adding cheese to it.
  6. Try to make a spicy cheese sauce, as a hot sauce with fries or baked vegetables makes a great combination.
