3-Cheese Sauce

Drizzle this creamy sauce over steamed or micro-cooked veggies for a tasty change of pace.


  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/4 cups low-fat milk or fat-free half-and-half
  • 2 ounces reduced-fat Swiss cheese, grated
  • 2 1/2 ounces reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


Step 1
In a small saucepan, blend flour with 2 tablespoons of the milk or half-and-half to form a smooth paste. Using a wire whisk, slowly blend in remaining milk until smooth. Simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
Step 2
Reduce heat and add cheeses, garlic powder, and pepper. Stir until well blended and cheese has melted.
Step 3
Remove from heat and use as desired.
