Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Add the flour and whisk to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
Slowly whisk in the heavy cream and milk. Continue to whisk periodically until thick, about 5-7 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat.
Add the Cheddar, Smoked Gouda, Mozzarella cheese, Bacon, salt, pepper and hot sauce to the pan and stir until melted.
