Baked Mac & Cheese – Shay’s Recipe of the Week

The holiday’s always bring out some great recipes but many are traditional or old family recipes that you just don’t mess with. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas I always fix my grandma’s mac & cheese and I’ve never changed anything from the way she used to make it. However, I found some different recipes on line that looked really good so I decided to make one and see if it’s as good as my grandma’s. Ingredients:

  • 3 c. uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 4 Tlbs. butter
  • 4 Tlbs. flour
  • 2-3 c. milk
  • 4 oz grated cheddar cheese
  • 4 oz grated Monterrey Jack cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Boil and drain your noodles.

In a pot melt your butter and add the flour to make a rue.

Pour into your baking dish (I used an 8×8) sprinkle the top with a little grated cheese (I also added a little sprinkle of Paprika for color) and place in oven to bake. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until bubbly.

I have to say this was pretty darn good, but it’s just not Grandma’s. I will make it again though, I do like the extra creaminess the white sauce adds.
