💡Tips

1. Don’t Let the Sauce Boil

Boiling can cause a number of issues that will ruin the texture and flavor of your sauce. When the sauce boils, the proteins in the cheese can start to break down and separate from the fat, leading to a grainy, curdled texture.

Additionally, boiling can cause some of the liquid to evaporate too quickly, resulting in a sauce that is too thick and prone to burning. To prevent these problems, keep a close eye on your sauce as it cooks, and make sure to keep the heat on medium-low.

As soon as you see the first signs of a simmer (small bubbles forming around the edges of the pan), remove the sauce from the heat. If you notice the sauce starting to boil rapidly, immediately take it off the heat and stir it well to distribute the heat evenly.

2. Freshly Grated Cheese

While it might be tempting to save time by using pre-shredded cheese, it’s highly recommended to shred the cheese yourself when making this carnivore cheddar cheese sauce.

Pre-shredded cheese often contains additives like anti-caking agents and preservatives that can negatively affect the texture and melting ability of the cheese.

These additives can prevent the cheese from melting smoothly, resulting in a grainy or clumpy sauce. By shredding the cheese yourself, you can ensure that it melts evenly and incorporates seamlessly into the sauce.
