Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Melt Becel® Buttery Taste margarine* in 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat and cook onion, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until starting to brown. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds. Stir in flour and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Whisk in milk gradually. Add broth and bring to a boil. Stir in thyme and black pepper. Remove from heat, then stir in 125 g cheese; set aside.
