Tasty Tuesday: Macaroni and Cheese

macaroni and cheese

This is my favorite macaroni and cheese recipe. This is my go-to for potlucks and I always get compliments and request for this dish.

To make it you will need: 12 oz package of elbow macaroni

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup flour

2 cups milk

3 cups shredded cheddar

Prepare macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet and mix in the flour. Then add the milk. Cook on medium heat about 5 minutes and mix in 1 cup of the cheese to make a cheese sauce.

Drain boiled noodles and mix together with cheese sauce. Spread about 1/2 of the cheesy noodles in a 9×13 baking dish and top with 1 cup of the shredded cheddar. Repeat with the rest of the noodles and cheddar. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, until cheese is golden brown.

Enjoy the cheesy goodness!

    I like this recipe. I can never seem to find one that my hubby and son like, they both the mac and cheese in the box rules, hopefully, this recipe will change their minds 🙂

  2. I do not like mac & cheese. I’ve tried lots of people’s recipes, but still don’t like it.

  3. Rebecca Parsons says:

    I love homemade macaroni and cheese but I have never attempted to make it myself. Love to give this recipe a try.

  4. Jude Skocki Kelly says:

    I have always failed epically at making mac and cheese from scratch. Kraft blue box is a staple in my pantry. This, however, sounds pretty easy. Fingers crossed 🙂

    My family, including the grandkids love Mac & Cheese. I like the the picture of your recipe. Mac & Cheese has to taste better with real cheddar & when the cheese browns to that golden color.

  19. I have been using this recipe for the last 2 years and it is amazing! I tend to tweak it a bit and add more cheese or different cheeses. Also is super good to add cayenne pepper, steamed broccoli, and some cut up sausage! Mix it together before you pop it in the oven!
