"This tasty cheese sauce, flavored with ground mustard, curry and marjoram, is especially good over broccoli and cauliflower," notes Ruth Bogdanski of Grants Pass, Oregon. "I like to add a sprinkling of crumbled bacon on top."


  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons evaporated milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • Dash to 1/8 teaspoon curry powder


  1. In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until the cheese is melted. Serve warm over broccoli or other cooked vegetables.
