It’s never a bad idea to make cheese sauce beforehand and store it. When you need cheese sauce, you only have to reheat it later instead of making it again from scratch. There are several different ways on how to reheat cheese sauce without compromise its mouthwatering flavor, taste, and gooeyness.
Whether you made a lot of cheese sauce by accident or you made it on purpose, you can learn how to reheat cheese sauce. Reheating cheese sauce isn’t difficult, and you can choose the method that works for you best. We’ll also tell you how to store it.
Reheat Cheese Sauce in the Microwave
Follow these steps:
- Put the cheese sauce in a microwave-safe bowl and put it in the microwave for 5 minutes.
- Stir the cheese sauce every 3 minutes.
- For the last remaining 2 minutes, stir the cheese sauce after every 20 seconds to 30 seconds.
Reheat Cheese Sauce in a Skillet
Follow these steps:
Put a small amount of butter into a skillet to melt it. The butter will prevent the cheese sauce from sticking to the surface of the skillet.
- Pour cheese sauce into the pan and put it on the stove over low to medium heat.
- Stir the cheese sauce regularly, allowing the cheese to cook until it’s properly and thoroughly reheated.
- After 10 minutes, turn off the heat.
- Reheat Cheese Sauce into a Crockpot
- Pour cheese sauce into a crockpot and reheat the cheese sauce on high heat, stirring it after every 2 to 3 minutes.
- You can reheat the cheese sauce over low heat, but you still have to stir it regularly after every 2 to 3 minutes.
Store Cheese Sauce
Here’s how to store cheese sauce:
- Put the cheese sauce into a tightly sealed container. You can use a bowl with a lid, a plastic container, or a jar. Whatever you use to store the cheese sauce, just ensure it seals tightly.
- You can also store the cheese sauce into a freezer bag.
- Store the cheese sauce in the fridge if you intend to use it within 5 to 7 days. If you want to store it for longer, put it in the freezer.
- Stirring the cheese sauce several times while you’re reheating it can prevent it from sticking to the sides of the pan. Scrape the sides of the pan and combine it with the rest of the cheese sauce each time you stir it.
- You can use any reheating method that you feel is easier for you to follow and understand. If you ask us, we suggest you use the skillet reheating method because it enhances the flavors of the cheese sauce.
- You can store the cheese sauce into the fridge for about one week or 7 days. You can store the cheese sauce into the freezer for up to half a month or 6 months.
Go ahead and make extra cheese sauce because now, you can store it and reheat it later. Storing cheese sauce is great because it’s like an instant dip that just needs reheating.
