  • Melt the butter in a large sauce pan, add the flour and seasonings. Stir with a wire whisk and bring to a fast boil, stirring constantly to make it smooth. Cook for 2 minutes. Add a little milk at a time but keep it to a dense texture. Add chicken broth to make a satiny sauce stirring vigorously with the wire whisk. Beat until the sauce is thick and creamy.
  • Now add the cheese and melt completely stirring constantly
  • Makes about 4-5 cups
  • Combine everything in a large mixing bowl, pour into a very large casserole dish that has been buttered. Bake at 350 degrees COVERED with foil or whatever for 30 minutes. Remove cover; cook 10-15 minutes.
