Baked Potato Day. I would look forward to it every single Wednesday in middle school, when you’d get a big ol’ baked potato for lunch and a helping of the cafeteria’s broccoli cheese sauce. No one liked baked potato day like I did. In fact, I’m probably the only one who even liked it at all. 🤣

As delicious as I thought the cafeteria’s version of cheese sauce was, I think I’ve nailed down a better one. This one’s got three different cheeses. Need I say more?

What Can You Serve With Cheese Sauce?

Aside from the obvious baked potato, there are tons of uses for this cheese sauce. You can enjoy it over pasta, dip vegetables into it, drizzle it on some homemade french fries, serve it with nachos… I mean, cheese goes with everything. Everything. 


Storing Leftover Cheese Sauce

This sauce is best if refrigerated and used within three days. 

Can You Freeze Cheese Sauce?

I love to freeze anything and everything, however sauces with sour cream and milk don’t freeze well, the consistency just isn’t the same when reheated.
