pouring keto cheese sauce on pasta and broccoli

Who doesn’t love a good cheese sauce?

Whisking up this heavenly keto cheese sauce is so simple thanks to a few common ingredients and only 15 minutes. Not bad for an addition that makes such a big impact on any dish! Better yet, the kids will absolutely love it… even on veggies!

Hip Recipe Tips:

    • I used cheddar and Monterey Jack but you could change up the cheeses to suit your taste. Omitting the Monterey Jack and subbing in smoked gouda would be a delicious alternative!
    • This recipe makes enough to fill two pint-sized jars, so you can use half right away and save the other half for later.
    • To reheat, simply heat the cheese sauce in a microwave-safe container for 30 seconds and stir.
