We all love pierogies but it had been ages since I’d served them for dinner. I always serve them with bacon and caramelized onions, with a big dollop of sour cream. And I always serve steamed broccoli on the side. This time I wanted to do something a little different with the broccoli. Enter this Easy Cheddar Cheese Sauce for Vegetables.
This is the same sauce you’d make for mac and cheese. It’s an easy sauce to make and was really good with the steamed broccoli. I thought the original recipe was a bit thick, so I’ve halved the butter and flour in the recipe below.
Easy Cheddar Cheese Sauce for Vegetables
As seen on Iowa Girl Eats
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoons flour

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and whisk for one minute.
Slowly whisk in milk then season with salt and pepper and switch to a wooden spoon. Stir and cook until thickened, about 4-5 minutes.
Turn off heat and add cheese. Stir until melted and smooth. Taste then season with additional salt and pepper if necessary. Serve immediately.
