This cheddar cheese sauce is actually adapted from my low carb white sauce recipe – I left out the egg yolk and used shredded cheese to thicken the sauce instead. It’s seriously easy to make and ready in just a few minutes! 

I used a Triple Blend of cheddar: Vermont White, Sharp, and Mild – but of course you should use whichever style of cheddar that you prefer. I tasted for seasoning but for once I didn’t think salt or pepper was necessary, so I haven’t included it in the recipe card. 

 

How to Make a Low Carb Cheese Sauce

Add cream cheese, heavy cream and water to a medium saucepan. Cook over a low heat until the cheese has melted. A non-stick whisk is useful for this recipe!

This sauce is very thick and creamy – watch my short Instagram video to see the consistency. SO good! 

You can use this low carb cheese sauce for all kinds of things – serve it over low carb spaghetti, with roasted broccoli, cauliflower, or other veggies, or like I did and use it in a Cheesy Noodle Chicken Casserole!
