Homemade Mac and Cheese
This was delicious! We had this for dinner last night with a big salad. (I didn’t get a picture of the salad.) Homemeade mac and cheese is a real treat, and it’s simple to make. Sorry this picture is a bit blurry, it’s hard to hold a camera and a fork at the same time. Here’s how:
Boil salted water for macaroni. Heat oven to 350. Cook macaroni a little firmer than al dente. Drain and set aside.
In a saucepan, melt 2 tblsp butter, whisk in 2 tblsp flour and salt and pepper. Whisk as the combination bubbles, reduce heat, then add 2 cups milk. I used 2%.
Grate 1 c Cheddar cheese, we used New York white cheddar. Once the milk mixture thickens a little, slowly add the cheese, a little bit at a time, and whisk it in. Take the cheese sauce off the heat. Add a little fresh grated nutmeg.
Butter a casserole dish. Mix the cheese sauce with the drained noodles. Top with a little extra cheddar. Bake for 20 minutes until golden and bubbly. Delicious!!
