Gouda!

One of my favorite cheeses, wax-wrapped aged gouda is pungent (in a good way!) and very flavorful. It also melts beautifully, rendering it ideal to use in a melted cheese sauce.

If gouda isn’t your thing, simply sub in an equal amount of another good melting cheese such as gruyere, swiss, raclette, or fontina.

Along with gouda, this velvety sauce incorporates neufchatel (1/3-less-fat) cream cheese for body, milk to thin it out a bit, and a touch of olive oil to keep it all smooth and silky.

You’ll want to serve the melted cheese sauce immediately, as it tends to thicken up quite quickly upon cooling. This shouldn’t be a problem, though, because once you taste the cheese sauce, you won’t want to waste any time drizzling it over crisp baked sweet potato fries and devouring a whole plate!
