    Best ready made cheese sauce? 2nd Oct 18 at 5:44 PM

    Just wondering if any one has recommendations for a good ready made cheese sauce to be used for pasta bake/macaroni?

    I know most will suggest to make it ourselves but we have tried several recipes and it just comes out tasting tasteless , bland and lumpy-

    I'm considering buying Asda / Waitrose cheese sauce (comes in a tub). Any one tried it and is it any good? or maybe the packet ones?

    I make a roux with the butter and flour, then add the milk.

    I think the poster is saying she chucks it all in together, which is not the same thing - so no need to laugh?

    If it's too bland, add half a teaspoon of vegetable stock powder (or I'm sure chicken would work too) It's a miracle worker!

    Yes, flour and fat - butter is fat. Chefs use flour and butter for their roux.
