Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the onion is translucent. Add the flour mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Gradually add the milk. Cook, stirring constantly, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until smooth and slightly thickened. Remove from the heat and add the cheddar. Stir until melted.
