Microwave Cheese Sauce

This is a much healthier alternative to the canned cheese dipping sauce
Microwave Cheese Sauce

1 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. flour
½ c. warm milk
½ c. shredded cheddar cheese
¼ tsp. salt (optional, to taste) or Italian dressing mix

1. In a large, microwave safe glass bowl, melt the butter - cover with a paper towel, cook for 30 second intervals on power 7, repeat until the butter is melted
2. Add the flour and milk, whisk all together until mostly smooth
3. Add the shredded cheese to the mixture
4. Place the bowl in the microwave and cook on HIGH for 1 ½ - 2 minutes, whisking every 30 seconds or so, until sauce is thick and heated through
5. Season with salt, if desired
