Once melted, add in the flour to make a roux, continually mixing so that the flour does not catch and burn.

Cook out the flour for 3-4 minutes or until the flour no longer tastes raw.

Don’t allow the roux to brown.

Slowly add in the warm infused milk, whisking as you go until you have a smooth, silky sauce.

Now melt in 250g grated cheese, add the mustard powder and check for seasoning.

Pass the sauce through a fine strainer.

Serve and garnish evenly with toppings above.
