Cheese Whiz Sauce! Quick multi-purpose Hot Cheese Sauce that can be thrown together in five minutes.

The Standard Cheese Sauce is made from Béchamel Sauce with Cheese. Any kind you’d like. For this recipe, we do something a little different. We use Arrowroot for the thickening because of the Texture it offers which is perfect for the cheese sauce. We use Cheese Whiz as the Cheese Source with some help from Brewers Yeast for undertones.

Tip: Use a spoonful of this cheese sauce or just Cheese Whiz in KD with Butter, Milk and Salt & Pepper.

Exchange Turmeric with Yellow or Orange Food Coloring. Add Cheddar Cheese Powder, which will add color as well as a stronger cheese flavor.

For a Buttery, Cheese Flavor exchange the Sea salt with Butter Popcorn Seasoning. This also adds color.
