CARNIVORE CHEDDAR CHEESE SAUCE
4 tbsp salted butter
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
4 oz cream cheese, softened and cubed
8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Begin by melting 4 tbsp of salted butter in a saucepan over medium heat. This will create a rich, buttery base for your sauce.
Once the butter is completely melted and sizzling, add in 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream. Stirring constantly, let the cream and butter combine into a smooth mixture.
Next, add the cream cheese. Ensure it's softened and cut into small cubes for easy incorporation. Keep stirring constantly until the cream cheese is fully melted and seamlessly blended with the cream mixture.
With the cream cheese fully incorporated, it's time to bring in the cheesiest component—8 oz of shredded cheddar cheese. Keep stirring vigorously to encourage the cheddar to melt into the creamy concoction. This step is where you'll achieve that luscious, cheesy texture we all love. If your sauce is too thick you can add some extra heavy whipping cream.
To elevate the flavors, season your Carnivore Cheddar Cheese Sauce with salt and pepper to taste or taco seasoning for nachos. Remember, the saltiness may vary depending on the butter and cheddar cheese you use, so season accordingly.
