Macaroni and Cheese

I got this recipe in high school in Home Economics and I still love to make it. The recipe is really easy and we love it! Rob rates my Macaroni and cheese as his #1 favorite thing that I make. It is a great side with dinner and it heats up well the next day as well. The only change that I have made to the original recipe is that I add bread crumbs to the top of it before I bake it. I also don't put the onions in when I make it.

Macaroni and Cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup elbow macaroni
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions (optional)
  • 8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, cubed (2 cups)
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Cook 1 1/2 c. macaroni in boiling salted water until tender; drain.
  3. In saucepan, melt butter; blend in flour, salt, and pepper. Add 2 cups of milk; cook and stir until thick and bubbly. (Its best to add the milk slowly)
  4. Add onion and cheese; stir until melted.
  5. Mix cheese sauce with macaroni. Turn into 1 1/2 quart casserole. (sprinkle bread crumbs on top)
  6. Bake 35-40 minutes.
