Cheese sauce will have your menu and bottom-line dripping with potential.
With labor being an endless challenge and investment, restaurants are constantly adapting to streamline other aspects of operations. To put it plainly, shortcuts are the key to success in today’s environment. Shortcuts can be a dirty word if resulting in an inferior product; however, some shortcuts can maintain quality while simplifying back-of-house complexities.
No matter the foodservice segment, efficiency is the name of the game for back-of-house menu execution. Making the right choice in a quality product that’s easily integrated into dry storage will help to free up refrigerated spaces like your walk-in cooler. Selecting ingredients, providing diversity in offerings, saving on labor and preparation time, and cross-utilizing ingredients in multiple menu items will also give operators an advantage.
Take cheese sauce for instance. It can deliver a better value from an ingredient cost perspective and, according to Technomic, command a higher menu price when added as a topping/loaded option (+42%). It’s a product that also works harder across your menu compared to shredded or sliced cheese and be that easy shortcut your BOH operation needs. There are endless possibilities and combinations. Try a Flamin’ Hot Cheeseburger, featuring Muy Fresco® Jalapeño Cheese Sauce. Topped with bacon, sliced jalapeños and a sesame seed bun, this recipe can serve as an excellent guideline for your own cheeseburger, finishing it off with one of our delicious cheese sauces. You can also find success and win over your customers with plant-based options like our Sriracha Buffalo Cauliflower Bites recipe, featuring Muy Fresco® Plant-Based Cheddar Cheese Sauce.
