Slow-Rise Sourdough Pretzels with Homemade Cheese Sauce
A delicious and easy homemade cheese sauce.
  • 1 T. butter
  • 1 T. flour (I used brown rice four to keep it gluten-free, but whole wheat is fine, too)
  • 1 c. raw or whole milk
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ t. salt
  • 2 pinches of chili powder
  1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Stir in flour until bubbly, then slowly add milk ¼ cup at a time, stirring until it begins to thicken between each addition. When all the milk is added, and the sauce is thickened, stir in cheese, salt, and chili powder.
