Cheese sauce. Two words that go together wonderfully. And really, what’s more comforting than a warm, cheesy, saucy meal on a cold evening (or any evening)?

Armed with a cheese sauce in your cupboard, the possibilities really are endless. So for a bit of creative inspiration, we thought we’d share 5 cheese sauce recipes that will go down great on any occasion!


Cauliflower (or broccoli) cheese

It would be wrong to start with anything else. This classic comfort dish is a go-to choice for many, and it’s incredibly simple. All you have to do is bake your cauliflower or broccoli, then make your cheese sauce and pour it over the top. Quick, easy, and wonderfully delicious.


Cheese omelette

When you think of using cheese in omelettes, you might initially think of solid cheese. But there’s no reason why you can’t use cheese sauce instead.

This is another tried-and-true classic, and a great option for a fast and tasty breakfast. Just cook your omelette as you normally do, make the cheese sauce separately and pour it into the pan whenever you would normally add your cheese!


Creamy cheesy pasta

Surely there are few combinations that go together better than cheese and pasta. On their own they’re two of the most comforting foods around. Together they lift the concept of comfort food to new heights.

As with the previous recipes on the list, this one is super easy. Simple cook your favourite pasta, make your cheese sauce, and mix them together. This is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, and a fantastic option if you’re cooking for a group.



This might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re wondering how to use up your cheese sauce. But it’s a winner. Nachos can be as complicated or as easy as you care to make them, but they’ll always go down a treat.

For the quickest and simplest option, simply make your cheese sauce (you might want to make it slightly thicker than you normally would) and pour it over your tortilla chips! And there you have it. The ultimate movie-night snack.


Cheesy baked bread sticks

For something a little different (and for an amazing snack or side dish), grab some bread sticks, drizzle them with cheese sauce, and pop them in the oven. This is a really great way to use up any leftover cheese sauce you might have lying around. Or, equally, it’s a great way of using up leftover breadsticks. But leftovers or not, you’ll be grateful you baked these cheesy treats!


Keep it cheesy
