Having grown up in "America's Dairyland", I wouldn't call Kraft Singles "cheese". It does contain some of the same ingredients, though.

Now if I could just get DH to give up his spray can cheese

I think that American sauce is a riff on a classic (and old) french sauce used in the dish Lobster a l’Americaine which should properly be called à l'Armoricaine (from Brittany) and is served on various kinds of fish.

The sauce includes shallots, tomatoes, wine or brandy or sherry, shellfish stock, various seasonings and often, cream.

My grandmother used to serve this sometimes....

here are some links:

Thanks Steve. I was thinking of a polite way of saying what you so eloquently posted.
