    the method for this was perfect, but like another reviewer said, without some additions it would be pretty bland. so i added some garlic paste (about 1tsp) at the tail end of making the roux. i also added a couple dashes of worcestershire and fish sauce and omitted the salt.

    this is absolutely one of my favorite Everyday Food recipes. use an extra sharp cheddar or add some blue cheese crumbles for more zing. i also add a pinch of cayenne. otherwise it tastes a little bland. it also stores well (in an air-tight container) for a couple of days.
