This recipe is from Mrs. Maurice A. Yoder. It's a thick, rich and creamy cheese sauce over hot buttered toast. Delicious!

I don't have bread crumbs. Is there a way to make this with flour? I feel like I saw a version like that somewhere. Anybody know?

Good cheese sauce. It's also good on eggs, ham and English muffins for a cheesy Eggs Benedict.
