Macaroni and Cheese
2 Tablespoons butter (or margarine)
¼ cup unsifted flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon dry mustard (or a little squirt of “regular” (prepared) mustard)
¼ teaspoon pepper
2 ½ cups milk
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
8 ounces of elbow macaroni, cooked 6 minutes and drained
¼ cup bread crumbs
In a 2 quart saucepan melt butter over low heat. Stir in flour, salt, mustard and pepper until smooth. Remove from heat. Gradually stir in milk until smooth. Stirring constantly, cook over medium heat about 10 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in 2 cups of the cheese until melted.
I COOK THE MACARONI ALL THE WAY (9 MINUTES OR SO). I PUT ALL THE CHEESE IN THE CREAM SAUCE. AFTER I DRAIN THE MACARONI, I PUT IT BACK IN THE PAN, OR IN A BIG BOWL, AND POUR THE CHEESE SAUCE OVER IT AND MIX WELL.
SO good :)
