My special awesome cheese sauce
« on: April 26, 2011, 08:31:08 am »
This is my TM conversion of my macaroni cheese sauce I have been making for over 30 years
Tonight we are having it with broccoli and cauliflower - I have just popped it in the oven while the steak cooks

Grate 180g tasty cheese on speed 8 for 5 seconds

Add
45 g flour
50 g butter
1 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp salt
pinch cayenne
500 g milk

Cook 7 mins 90 deg speed 4

This sounds great and I will give this a go.  I make a mean cheese sauce on the stove but since getting my new thermomix have used their recipe about twice and it is very gluggy.......I'm still in the process of converting my recipes to thermo as I prefer mine.  The only problem is that mine are all by sight not by weight!!!! Lets hope yours gives me the weights. ;D

Having a roast tonight and thought I make a cheese sauce to go over some broccoli. You've just saved me the trouble of looking for one as I don't really like the EDC version. Thanks heaps - I'll let you know how it goes.

I made it for the colli/broc too, and we did enjoy it.
It does taste like a real cheese sauce, compared to the EDC bechamel sauce with cheese added - IYKWIM  :)
Next time I will try it with cornflour, as that's a personal preference.

Just finished making this with rice flour that I milled. A quick taste before pouring over the cauliflower and broccoli and it's yum. As Maddy says, it tastes like a real cheese sauce. Not just bechamel with cheese added.

Hope you don't mind monkeyboyzmum.....I slightly tweaked your recipe, and really loved it!

I used 200g tasty cheese & 45g cornflour, and kept the rest as listed.
 :-*  Thanks.....I have ditched the EDC one for sure  :)

LOL.....it's Johnro's beef macaroni bake  http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=4246.0
I also add to her recipe:
1 large red capsicum, use 2 carrots, 2 tsp. masterfoods pizza topper, and some chopped fresh basil.  I also leave out the peas (blerk;D)

I cook the full 500g packet of macaroni, and mix with the beef mix and tip all in a roasting pan.  It makes enough then to freeze.

We had Johnro macaroni Beef as well tonight and it was very tasty and a hit with the kids. I think I will try this cheese sauce next time just to say I have tried it and decide which one I would prefer.

Surpisingly it wasn't too thick.....a nice thicker pourable sauce.  It certainly seemed thinner than the EDC bechamel.
