Baked Flounder with Cheese Sauce

Morsels of Life - Baked Flounder with Cheese Sauce

I figured I would give this baked flounder with cheese sauce a try, having never made flounder (or really, anything else) in a cheese sauce. This recipe is pretty simple and straightforward - season the flounder, bake, and pour sauce on top. I also sprinkled some additional cheese on top just for fun! I was a bit nervous making the sauce because I had never made a sauce starting off with butter and then adding flour and milk, but it was both simple and quick! I just swirled the pot around a bit, and that's all it took. Yay for not having to clean another utensil! If I were to make this flounder again, I would probably add a bit more lemon juice and possibly some other herbs (maybe rosemary?). Although this version is not bad, some extra flavor is always welcome!
