Never Serve Naked Veggies Again

My nonagenarian mother called me yesterday and asked for my cheese sauce recipe, because she couldn’t find it on unKETOventional. So here it is … the next time you need a great basic cheese sauce for those steamed naked broccolis and cauliflowers you can find it here.

Very flexible recipe, if you like it more runny just add more cream. If you like it a bit thick to use as a dip, reduce the cream by half.
