1 stick butter ? cup flour

1 stick butter

1/4 cup flour

1/2 quart heavy cream

3/4 cup Fontina cheese

3/4 cup Gruyere Cheese

3/4 cup Swiss cheese

1 1/2 tablespoons onion powder

1/2 tablespoon cayenne pepper

1. To make roux, melt one stick of butter in a pan over medium-high heat. Add flour and whisk until combined and color starts to darken; set aside to cool.

2. To make cheese sauce, add heavy cream to a pot and bring to a simmer. Reserve ¼ cup of each cheese. Slowly whisk in shredded cheese and remaining ingredients, until well incorporated. Strain cheese sauce through mesh sieve, return to clean pot, bring to a simmer, and slowly add about 1 tablespoon of the cooked roux, while whisking, to thicken sauce.
