Macaroni & Cheese

This week at TC, our Daily Writing Thread (which is actually a weekly thread with daily updates) somehow digressed into a discussion of mac & cheese. Which got me wondering if I’d ever posted my recipe. I searched and it doesn’t look like it, so here it is:

Macaroni & Cheese

3½ cups macaroni
¼ cup butter
3 tbsp flour
¼ tsp salt
1¾ cups skim milk
1 tsp dry mustard
½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
2½ cups old cheddar cheese, grated (2 cups for cheesy mix, ½ cup for topping)
1 cup bread crumbs

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Boil macaroni for 7 minutes; drain.
  3. While macaroni is cooking, stir together butter, flour, salt, milk, 2 cups cheese, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard in a large bowl. (It’ll be lumpy/imperfectly combined. Don’t worry about it. The next step will take care of it.)
  4. Add macaroni and stir with wooden spoon until butter and cheese are melted and cheesy mix is completely blended.
  5. Pour into 7×11 baking dish. Top with bread crumbs and remaining cheese.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
