My Favourite Mac and Cheese
2 cups macaroni (uncooked)
4 cups of milk
¼ cup butter
8 TBSP flour
½ tsp. dried mustard (can omit)
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
2 ½ cups grated cheese
2 Tbsp butter
4 Tbsp bread crumbs
4 Tbsp grated cheese
I don’t measure, just mix up my own topping proportions.
Cook macaroni in boiling water until tender. Drain.
Scald milk in heavy saucepan. Don’t burn! LOL
Melt butter, separately. Stir in flour and seasonings.
Add milk gradually, then add the mixture to the milk.
Stir over medium heat until mixture thickens then add cheese and stir.
Remove from heat. Add macaroni. Place in greased casserole and cover with topping.
Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes until topping is browned.
