Flourless Cheese Sauce

Flourless Cheese Sauce

Flourless cheese sauce is melty and delicious - and best of all - cheesy!!! I love cheese sauce but so many of them use flour and I don't like that taste so I wanted to make a flourless cheese sauce that I can use on nachos, pasta and even pizza!

  • Place a small sauce pan on medium heat and bring the half and half to a simmer
    1 cup half and half
  • Reduce heat to low and whisk in Velveeta until melted
    1/4 pound Velveeta

    1/4 pound Smoked Gouda, 1/4 pound White Cheddar, 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • Whisk until all cheese is melted - whisk - whisk - whisk!
  • Set aside and keep warm
  • Makes 1 1/2 cups cheese sauce


Do I have to use Velveeta?
No – you could use American cheese or other equally processed cheeses like Cheese Whiz or Olde English.
What are other cheeses I could use instead of gouda or white cheddar?
If those aren’t your favorite – there’s a host of other cheeses you could use – think of firmer cheeses (not Mozzarella) that have a lot of strong flavor (not Provolone). My other favorites are Gruyere, Yellow Cheddar, Monterrey Jack, Parmesan and even Brie.
Do I have to use half & half?
You can use milk or heavy cream – if milk – you might need to add a little more cheese to thicken it up – if you use cream – you might loosen it up with a little water
Should I cube or grate the cheese?
Cube the Velveeta – shredding it is a mess! Grate the gouda & cheddar cheeses – I used cubed gouda because that’s all my grocery store had – it takes a lot longer to melt – but it will still works.
How do you reheat this cheese sauce?
Place your leftover cheese sauce in a sauce pan – you’ll want to break it up a little. I just take a tablespoon and scoop it out of the jar I had it in and drop into the pan. Add 1/4 cup of milk or half and half. Heat on medium low (3-4) until nice and melty again!
