Homemade Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Tonight, our chef in training Sarah prepared an old family favorite. We call it Dad's Mac and Cheese. Jake swears that the recipe is a secret. What that really means is that he has been too lazy to write his recipe down and just throws whatever he wants into a pot without measuring. Sarah though actually went to the trouble to write down the ingredients as she was preparing this easy but tasty dish.

  • 3/4 Cup Milk
  • 3 Tbl Butter
  • 1 handful of flour
  • 1 pinch of garlic salt
  • 1 small onion chopped (Optional)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 lb dry elbow macaroni pasta
  • Cook Pasta
  • In a sauce pan, melt butter
  • Reduce onion
  • Add flour
  • Add Milk
  • Add Cheese
  • Slowly melt cheese stirring often.
  • Combine Pasta and Cheese Mixture
  • Enjoy!

I tried this recipe tonight with just a few alterations. I used whole wheat pasta and real garlic. Then I added some bread squares sauteed in butter, garlic and onion salt and pepper. Once the ingredients were all mixed, I baked it for 15 minutes at 425. MMM MMM good!!!! Thanks for the recipe!!
