Comfort Food Classics

As your operators plan their fall, winter and holiday menus, they’re sure to consider those perennial favorites: comfort food classics. When there’s a chill in the air, diners gravitate towards warm, rich, hearty dishes—and no item is better positioned to feed that demand than cheese sauce! Bay Valley Foods offers a unique range of shelf-stable cheese sauces that are extremely versatile, adding creamy goodness across menu items and dayparts. They’re available in classic flavors as well as bolder, spicy varieties—so we’re sure to have the right cheese sauce for any recipe application.

Traditionally the cheese component of a burger or sandwich comes in the form of sliced Cheddar or Swiss. But Bay Valley Foods cheese sauces are a great alternative, delivering an appealing combination of smooth texture and mouth-watering flavor to enhance Philly cheesesteak, BBQ-bacon burgers or anything served on a pretzel bun! Your operators can also think of cheese sauce as an ingredient, especially when used as a pasta base. Our Saucemaker™ Monterey Jack Cheese Sauce is the perfect example—use it as the basis for housemade baked macaroni and cheese. Or, try as a substitute for Hollandaise sauce in breakfast items like Eggs Benedict. On the appetizer menu, our cheese sauces liven up chicken wings, crudités and French fries. As a convenient, cost-effective condiment or dip, the possibilities are endless!

Flavor comes first with Bay Valley Foods cheese sauces. Our core line includes these top-selling varieties, and more:

  • Saucemaker™ Monterey Jack Cheese Sauce
  • Bay Valley® Brand Creamy Cheddar Cheese Sauce
  • Mi Pueblo™ Aged Cheddar Cheese Sauce
  • Mi Pueblo™ Nacho Cheese Sauce
  • Mi Pueblo™ Jalapeño Cheese Sauce 

We also offer Mi Pueblo™ Hearty Chili Sauce, a tasty topping that can be used alongside our cheese sauces on nachos, hot dogs and more!

Indulgent, satisfying and simply delicious. Our cheese sauces deliver consistent performance every time—and they’re great for an operator’s bottom line. In fact, 6 out of 10 patrons would pay an upcharge of up to $1.00 more for cheese sauce as a topping or side dipping option.* Visit the Bay Valley Foods website at for more information.
