      A surprisingly cheesey sauce

      I purchased this at my local Asda recently where it was on offer for 4 packs for a £1. Other choices were, bread sauce, onion sauce.

      I love this sauce to be in my cupboard because its instant and can be made with boiling water , some sauces use milk which then makes the sauce cost more.

      Its easy to make and on opening the packet, you are immediately struck by a cheese aroma. On emptying the contents (54g of powder) into the jug you then add 1/2 a pint of boiling water, whisk briskly with a fork, and then if necessary top back upto 1/2 pint (280ml).

      Allow to stand for couple of minutes, whisk again and its that simple.

      I found that by varying the amount of boiling water you can make a ticker sauce which is what i prefer, i `ve used it as a quick cauliflower cheese sauce, a quick sauce for lasagne and as a sauce in it self to top gammon , its delicious. And if you needed it to be more cheesey, grate some cheese on top.

      It really is versatile and excellent texture and quality

      Tasty and a good store cupboard product to have!

      I love cheese sauce. Usually I go for Coleman's knowing I'm getting quality and that it is a really nice sauce and easy to prepare etc however on going to pick up a packet of that I was detracted by this purely cos it was on offer at any four Asda sachets of sauces for a pound and with Coleman's usually costing about 43p a packet it made sense to get a variety!

      The Packaging:

      White and dark blue sachet and on the front there is a photograph of the sauce dribbled over some cooked vegetables. I am then told that it is Asda Instant Cheese Sauce 'Just add boiling water' and that it contains not artificial colours, flavours or hydrogenated fat and that it is suitable for Vegetarians. On the back of the packet other information given includes ingredients and allergy advice being listed, I'm told how to prepare the sauce and a full nutritional rundown chart is listed as well as storage advice, the best before date is clearly stamped on and contact details for Asda are of course given. Nice enough and informative packaging this is and easy to open etc it is!

      The Sauce Itself:

      Well this sauce is really ease to prepare. All you so is take the fine off white powder and blend it with 1/2 pint of water and mix it. You don't need an electric blender or whisk or anything like that a fork will suffice and you just beat it until it goes into a very light yellow creamy, glossy looking sauce with no lumps in it.

      Taste wise well it's a mild, well seasoned cheese sauce that is very creamy and tasty actually. Not too rich on cheese flavouring but distinctive this to what it is, it is! Nothing going on but cheese flavouring and I like this one on every level from how easy it is to prepare it with no lumps, to the general slightly runny consistency to the taste of it. It's great on cauliflower cheese and other vegetables, nice on cooked pasta and great in a lasagna. Versatile this is and a great bargain even if not on the four for a pound offer at only 42P a packet usually.
