  • 1 1/2 cups milk fat free if desired
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  2. Meanwhile, for roux melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot; cook and stir1 to 2 minutes until shallot is slightly softened. Sprinkle flour over shallot; stir to dissolve flour into butter. Whisk in milk and continue whisking until all of flour is incorporated into milk.

Whisk until cheese completely melts into sauce.
