1-1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1-1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese; grated
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric - optional (Beautifully enhances the ‘yellow’ color without changing flavor; adding a healthy note)
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and seasonings and let the ‘flour flavor’ cook out for a couple of minutes (do not let mixture brown though); gradually add the milk while whisking constantly, until well blended. Turn off heat, and add cheese and turmeric, whisking until smooth.
