Default Need a recipe for Cheese Sauce, low or no-carb

Looking for a cheese sauce recipe for some broccoli tonight. I've never successfully made cheese sauce... the only attempts I tried were... clumpy and gross, LOL.

I've found some on the 'web, but would prefer something tested and approved-of by people I trust!

Thanks for anything you can provide!

when I would make cheese sauce, I went to a lot trouble.
grated the best cheese's, slow melt in double boiler, spices, flour butter milk to make a roux.
then I went low carb, no flour or had the desire to fuss with it .

I just slowly melt fresh grated cheese maybe add some butter & cream. s&p. done lol.Or I just use the cheese between the layers broccoli, it melts it. thats just me , I am lazy.

I do still grate all my cheese, pre packaged cheese has potato & corn starch added.

These suggestions are exactly how I do mine now - melted cheese & heavy cream. No thickening is necessary when using cream. Add a daub of butter to finish the sauce.

I've never used much except salt & white pepper, but these gals have tripped my trigger now, so I'll prob'ly be experimenting with a little wooster & other spices/herbs!

So I looked at what muck had posted up above, and didn't measure anything (sort-of eyeballed it) but did the following...

Threw butter, cream cheese, whipping cream, old cheddar (crumbled into pieces) into a microwavable bowl, added a dash of mustard, worcestershire and a smidge of pepper. Then nuked it on medium and stirred it every 30 or 40 seconds until it was 'saucy'. It worked just fine, so THANKS!

Mustard is one of the few things that actually makes my mouth water . . . I don't slather it on everything, but I like a touch of it in many recipes. Seems like I go through a lot of dry mustard too. Even the bread dressing recipe I used to use, calls for mustard - that's prob'ly why was my favorite! lol! Thanks Muck!
