Weight Watcher’s Cheese Sauce Two Ways

Use this sauce on any vegetables you like – only 2 points per 3 tablespoons.  The second recipe uses Gruyere cheese (or any Swiss cheese) and I do not have the points value but I am sure it is about the same as the first recipe.

  • 1/2 cup evaporated fat-free milk
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup 2% sharp shredded cheese
  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper (optional)

Whisk together the evaporated milk and flour in a small saucepan until smooth.  Stir in the 2% milk, mustard and salt.  Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for about 4-5 minutes, or until slightly thickened.

Stir in the 2% cheese and pepper; remove from the heat and stir until the sauce is smooth.

Comment:  This cheese sauce is quite good!

Gruyere Cheese Sauce:

  • 4 tsp. flour
  • 1 cup 1% milk, divided
  • 1/2 cup Gruyere cheese
  • dash or two of garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Whisk flour with 2 tbsp. milk until smooth.  Heat the remaining milk in a small saucepan until steaming.  Add the flour mixture, whisking until the sauce bubbles and thickens for 2 to 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in Gruyere, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste.
