How to Make Cheese Sauce
Like most heavy cream cheese sauces, it’s less about the ingredients and more about technique.
- Bring the cream to a heavy boil but don’t allow it to scald.
- Add cream cheese and seasonings, being sure to constantly whisk so everything is incorporated.
- Remove from heat and stir in the cheeses until everything is blended.
Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and you are ready to go!
How to Thicken Cheese Sauce
The best way to thicken a heavy cream cheese sauce is to boil the milk down further before adding the cheeses. Or try adding a slurry or a roux.
To Make a Roux
- Melt butter in a saucepan.
- Add equal parts flour and cook together until a thick paste is formed.
To Make a Slurry
- Combine 4 parts cold water with 1 part cornstarch.
- Slowly add to the milk mixture to thicken.
Add either of these to the heavy cream and cream cheese mixture and be sure it is completely smooth before adding the cheeses. This is a good technique for thick dipping sauces or a nacho style sauce!
