Cheese sauce as Burgersoße

What you need

  • 250 ml of cream
  • 50 ml of milk
  • 250 g Cheddar
  • 100 g processed cheese
  • Turmeric, garlic (powder), ginger (powder), salt, pepper
  • For the roux: oil, butter or margarine, flour, water
As already mentioned, this sauce is easy to turn into a chill cheese sauce, just add a few chilli flakes.


For the cheese sauce, cream is heated in a pot (at 3 / 4 heat). After about 5 minutes, add milk, cheddar (in pieces) and the processed cheese. The sauce must now boil briefly.

Then the heat is reduced before turmeric, garlic, ginger, and salt & pepper are added. Now the sauce has to simmer for about 10 minutes, over medium heat.

In the meantime, you can turn to the roux.

Butter, oil or margarine is heated in a coated pan until small bubbles are visible. The flour is then added with stirring until it turns light brown. If the flour has turned light brown, the water is added. The roux must now, as long, on a small scale, simmer until a creamy liquid is formed. Please do not forget to stir.


When the roux is ready, it is added to the sauce. The sauce must now simmer briefly until a creamy consistency is reached.
