This post was some how deleted with the magic of the internet, so I’m re-posting a shorter version.

Mac cheese is a wonderful soul food that is easy to make to feed many people. This is also one of the best recipes I’ve seen. JEM’s mom passed the recipe on to me and I’ve passed it on to my family. Recipes like this one meant to share, enjoy!!

Ingredients

  • 2 tbs margarine
  • 1/2 cup unsifted flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 5 cups milk
  • 2 blocks (4 cups) of grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 16 oz macaroni cooked 6 min, drained
  • 1/2 cup italian or Panco bread crumbs
  • Onion to taste

Steps

  1. In saucepan melt margarine over low heat.
  2. Stir in flour, salt, mustard, and pepper until smooth.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Gradually stir in milk until smooth.
  5. Stirring constantly, cook over medium heat about 12 minutes or until thickened.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. Stir in the onion and the cheese until the cheese is melted.
  8. Turn macaroni into greased casserole.
  9. Pour cheese and onion mixture over macaroni; mix well.
  10. Sprinkle bread crumbs over top of the casserole.
  11. Bake 375 oven 25 minutes or until topping lightly browned. (We generally broil the mac cheese for the last few minutes to really make sure it gets browned.
