I love the taste if edam cheese and I want to know if I can make a sauce with it? Like the sauce with the roux+milk+cheddar can I replace cheddar with edam?

  • I have made cheese sauce with Edam - and didn't like it! :) For that matter, I'd never use cheddar either! But yes you absolutely "can do this" - give it a go. As always make the roux extremely slowly and with great care. There's nothing more difficult to make than roux. – Fattie Mar 16 at 18:07

AFAIK, you should be OK.

It is a hard cheese, similar but different than cheddar, but should work.

You might have to experiment a little bit, even if the cheeses are similar, their behavior when melting might be different.
